[The] health-care act is key because, unlike challenger Mitt Romneys tax reform plan or Obamas deficit-reduction plan, voters can truly count on it .
If Obama is reelected we will see the first iteration of a uniquely American universal health-care system. If history is any guide, it will become effectively permanent soon after it is introduced .
If Romney wins, the Affordable Care Act will probably be fully or largely repealed....[If he] wins and Democrats still hold the Senate, theyre unlikely to have a cushion of more than a vote or two. Its possible that [even] the Senates most conservative, endangered Democrats will resist Romneys call for repeal...but I wouldnt bet much money on it.
In addition to being the central policy at stake in this election, the Affordable Care Act is the centerpiece of Obamas legacy. If hes reelected, he will go down in history as the president who finally provided almost every American with health insurance. Thats enough to elevate him to the pantheon of transformative presidents .
If he loses, he will go down in history as a one-termer who gambled and lost on universal health care

The Democrats could have created a single payer health care system.
Instead they created an unpopular bureaucratic monster called ObamaCare that no one wanted.
This isn’t Universal Health Care - not by a long shot.
It is not now, but it will lead directly to one, after it intentionally destrokys the private insurance market...
Obamacare is Vista.
Government is Microsoft with guns and prisons.
And so this is the (risky) price we must pay for John Roberts to have preserved the image of his precious Sumpreme Court.
