President Readies Obamacare Handouts to Soften Repeal Support

After the Supreme Court ruled that Obamacare was constitutional, President Barack Obama immediately started to tout parts of Obamacare that people like, such as the provision allowing parents to keep their children on their health insurance plans until they are 26 years of age.

Obama had good reason to do so, for as people start to receive “benefits” from Obamacare, they will be less likely to want to give up those benefits. Once those provisions are locked in, it will be more difficult to repeal the legislation. Much of Obamacare — including that mandate that Chief Justice John Roberts decided was a tax to uphold the law — has yet to be implemented, and that is why Obamacare must be repealed before those provisions kick in in 2014.
