On this weekend’s “Fox News Sunday,” Washington Post columnist George Will argued President Barack Obama would have been better off had the Supreme Court ruled ObamaCare unconstitutional.
“By now it seems to me fair to say three things,” Will said. “First: If he told the truth about the law — about keeping your doctor and your health care — he probably wouldn’t have been elected in 2012. Second: He’d be better off today if in 2012 the chief justice had voted the other way and if [Chief Justice John Roberts] had struck down the law. It wouldn’t be such a burden on this presidency.”
“But beyond that, we’ve now added to incompetence and dishonesty, naked unfairness,” Will continued. “When he says, ‘if you had health insurance and it was canceled, you’re preferred. If you didn’t have health insurance you could still be punished by the government for not getting it.’ People just think it’s … unfair.”
