    As mentioned in this discussion, the goodies of the new health care law will likely entice a good number of voters to support the Democratic ticket at the mid-terms. Marginal seats will flip back to the Republicans, but not enough for the kind of crushing majority needed to repeal. Just as Republicans “fear-mongered” about the dire consequences of this reform bill, so too will the Democrats. It's funny how something like extending coverage to adult children will win over large numbers of people who cannot grasp the economics of the situation. Extending coverage that will, in a few years, be no different in terms of cost for these parents than simply paying for their son or daughters individual coverage. Of course, within a few years a great number of private insurers will have exited the healthcare field and the public insurer will, by necessity, be created by Congress to finish the work of bringing about a single-payer system.
