The Republican party consists increasingly of non- college educated whites. In general, these are middle and lower middle class people whom are exactly the groups most likely to benefit from Obamacare or to suffer from its defeat. In fact, the U.S. healthcare delivery system was on the verge of collapse due to skyrocketing costs and withering rates of coverage prior to the legislation's enactment.
So, it is amusing and revealing to speculate on what the law's de juris repeal would mean to the GOP's most ardent partisans. First, the cost of health insurance would skyrocket almost overnight. State Insurance Commissioners would attempt to impede these increases, the denial of which would simply cause insurance companies to abandon states and or many policy holders as they seek to avoid bankruptcy.
In other words, those most strongly opposed to the bill would be the most injured by its abscence.
So why do they oppose it? Literally, ignorance, stupidity as well as their own reflexive fears. That is the real lesson herein... as the world becomes more complex it also becomes more decisive... punishing intellectual incompetence as it more richly rewards intellectual competence.
