Did Republicans lose the health care battle but win the health care war?

June 29, 2012 @

Thursday was a banner day for President Obama and congressional Democrats as the Supreme Court validated the signature accomplishment of his first term in office.

But, even as Democrats celebrated, Republicans insisted that their rivals — and members of the media — couldn’t see the forest through the trees.

Jonathan Collegio, communications director for American Crossroads, a leading conservative outside group, called the ruling a “millstone” around the neck of any Democrat running for federal office this fall.

“The Supreme Court’s decision forces Obamacare to be litigated in the 2012 elections, and in virtually every case where Obamacare has been litigated by voters in an election, the law and its supporters lose,” added Collegio.

“This ruling is the kiss of death for the Democrat majority in the U.S . Senate as health care just became a tax increase on the middle class in one of the worst economies Americans have ever faced,” added longtime Republican strategist Chris LaCivita.

    I believe that Chief Justice Roberts is one SMART cookie that has hoodwinked the hood-winkers!!! ~ Good reason for that big “possum grin” he’s been displaying lately! ~ Many people are STILL confused at his actions, but TIME will bring about POSITIVE results and Roberts will go down in history as an American Hero! ~ Stay Tuned for coming attractions!!!
