And, of course, the TRUE Republican opposition to Obamacare now is that it, too, will also be popular and a sacred cow.
No, pretty sure that's not it.
I'm pretty sure it has much more to do with the facts that:
a. it is causing premiums to skyrocket for most people
b. it is causing millions of workers to lose their employer coverage due to the increasing costs of premiums
c. it's causing thousands of businesses to layoff workers reduce hours, or freeze hiring to avoid having to pay for penalties or health coverage
d. it is based on an unconstitutional use of the interstate commerce clause due to the fact that purchasing insurance across state lines is already illegal.
e. it is unconstitutional as a tax due to having been introduced in the wrong house of Congress to be legally passed as a tax.
f. we were lied to about being able to keep our own doctor and insurance
g. it forces religious groups to pay for coverage for their employees that covers provisions that go against their religious beliefs
h. it is causing thousands of doctors to retire early
i. even the unions are up in arms about it
