Following Thursday's Supreme Court ruling to uphold President Obama's health care reform law, it did not take long for Republicans to shift en masse from public displays of anger and disappointment to reaffirmation of their commitment to repeal the law.
The crux of Mitt Romneys argument against the Affordable Care Act, after all, had never been that it is unconstitutional, but rather that it is bad policy.
Yet the health care issue has always been an exceedingly tricky one for the former Massachusetts governor. His Republican primary opponents were eager to point out that his universal plan in the Bay State served as a model for Obamas national reform, and Romney now runs the additional risk of being perceived by swing voters as re-litigating an issue that already has been resolved.
