    More than two-thirds of Americans hope the Supreme Court will overturn some or all of the 2010 health care law, according to a new poll conducted by The New York Times and CBS News. Just 24 percent said they hoped the court “would keep the entire health care law in place.”

    The Supreme Court is expected to decide a challenge to the law by the end of this month.

    Forty-one percent of those surveyed said the court should strike down the entire law, and another 27 percent said the justices should overturn only the individual mandate, which requires most Americans to obtain health insurance or pay a penalty.

    There are liberals who think this will be bad for Republicans, but I don't see it. It's a highly unpopular bill as the polling suggests + it looks unconstitutional to a lot of scholars. It's true that the tea party movement swelled as a result of this bill but the movement has become a lot more than just about obamacare. From the start it was about the overreach of government and obamacare was just the straw that broke the camel's back as its continued influence particularly on state elections shows.
