Reader Poll: How Will the Supreme Court Rule on Obamacare?

The Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, is one of the President's most controversial accomplishments.

Obamacare has been one of Obama’s most contentious accomplishments, that’s had some PA politicians, even on the blue side of the aisle, distancing themselves from it.

In the fratricidal PA-12 race, Obamacare was a touchy issue – with Rep. Jason Altmire (D-Allegheny) having voted against it, and Rep. Mark Critz (D-Cambria) claiming he would have voted against it had he been in office.

Critz won that race, but is now facing attacks from his Republican challenger Keith Rothfus, who pointed out that Critz had many opportunities to vote for measures repealing parts of the law, but voted against them.

Attorney General candidate Kathleen Kane was also dealt a tongue-lashing from her Republican opponent David Freed for stating she would withdraw the state from an anti-Obamacare lawsuit.

It’s already come up in these races and a handful of others, and is sure to become an issue in every campaign, from the President down to every state representative.

With that in mind, and with the Supreme Court due to rule any day now, PoliticsPA wants to know what its readers think:

  1. I think this law is gone. Having worked in the insurance for 30 years I can tell you this law will destroy competiveness and make insurance impossible. The Medicare provision is a grossly unfair burden for states, and I think this will be abundantly clear to these justices. THIS LAW IS FINISHED!

  2. It is such a shame that this question even needs to be asked at all. The Supreme Court has so screwed up the meaning of our constitution over the years that the founders would turn over in their graves.

  3. THE PEOPLE SPOKE TO THEIR REPRESENTATIVES BEFORE THEY VOTED ON THE BILL.
    IT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL TO MAKE ANY ONE BUY SOMETHING HE DOES NOT WANT. IF ONE PART OF THE BILL IS WRONG THAN WHAT GOOD IS THE PART THAT IS LEFT?
    TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION

  4. The people spoke to their representatives before it was made into law. One section was unconstitutional for no one should be forced to by things they do not want and be taxed for the object.
    TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION

  5. SCOTUS WILL DO WHAT IT WILL DO. I think Keith the Candidate Rothfus should be criticized for his support of the Ryan Medicare plan and I would love to learn about Keith’s work for Faith Healer Pat Robertson.
