QOTD: "...Obamacare remains incredibly unpopular. Actual public opinion polling shows that the public’s opinion is considerably more nuanced on this issue and that certain provisions of the law are very popular while others are not. But what the polling has consistently shown is that specifically, what is dragging down Obamacare’s popularity overall is the individual mandate penalty, which is far and away the most unpopular part (and widely known) feature of the law.

There may well be some unfortunate consequences of undoing the federal subsidies from the standpoint of the workability of the law itself, but negative public response will definitely not be one of them. In fact, it is hard to imagine, at least from a purely political standpoint, a more desirable result than having the individual mandate kicked out from under the law for a sizeable portion of America. The natural consequence of this is that millions of Americans will happily be freed from the mandate, whereas those who remain subject to it will likely see their premiums spike as a result, which will consequently make the law yet more unpopular in the eyes of the American public." --Leon Wolf
