The world has changed some.
Republicans didn’t lose the House last month to gun control, climate change, or immigration. They got wiped out in the suburbs, and elsewhere by Health care.
2018 Midterms was about Health care. Period.
If last night’s ruling holds, Republicans can weaken themselves electorally in suburbs, and swing states, thereby putting the Republican Presidency at risk in 2020, and losing odds to win back the House.
This isn’t 2010. Health care is now a political winner, and pre-existing conditions are the new Holy Grail of Health Care.
Next time Dems are in power, they’ll push for Medicare-for-all, which would be a disaster.
We’ll see how the coming months go, but at this point, if the Obamacare ruling holds, I’m thinking Congress gives Trump his wall, in exchange for protecting pre-existing conditions.

Everyone with an ❌ has since been voted out of Congress.
