It has been another rough year for Obamacare. A majority of state governments continue to resist the Affordable Care Act’s expansion of Medicaid, and only about a third of them have agreed to set up state-administered insurance exchanges. Obamacare remains about as unpopular today as it was right after its passage. Despite all these problems, however, Obamacare will be implemented (at least in part), and many conservative critics waiting for the law to collapse under its own weight will need to postpone their funeral plans until they can do a better job of articulating the conservative health-care agenda to the public. Obamacare may not be carried out as written and may not survive as implemented, but persuading voters to overturn what unfortunately remains, for now, the law of the land will require a serious approach to solving our health-care system’s very real problems.
