John Heilemann on Andrea Mitchell Reports: Romney Campaign Will Now ‘Make Hay’ With Individual Mandate

By

Reacting to today's Supreme Court decision to uphold Obamacare, John Heilemann said on Andrea Mitchell Reports, "This is going to be a political issue this fall. The Romney campaign does see a way to make hay with this, which is going to make the president have to defend it." It being the individual mandate — the controversial, unpopular, unconstitutional core of President Obama's health care plan. Heilemann predicts Obama's spin will sound something like this: "Hey, this is now the law and if you let it play out, we're gonna have benefits for you that you're gonna like." We're pretty sure they mean ice cream.
