Good boilerplate can be adapted to any argument including the latest threat to the ACA. Opponents to the individual mandate argue that the U.S. Constitution's Commerce Clause does not grant Congress the power to compel Americans to purchase health insurance in a private market. The retort in the Washington Post? Use the opening "victim" anecdote to portray what could happen if the individual mandate is rolled back. State that the uninsured and runaway cost statistics are the result of not having an individual mandate in place. Portray the individual mandate as a way of bringing insurers under control. Lump the mandate's attackers with other extremists. Close with the observation that the mandate's opponents would make better use of their time by working with the White House.
The DMCB hopes this is the usual public relations posturing and that some real work, negotiating, learning and dialogue is going on behind the scenes. If this is all the Administration has, health reform may be in real trouble.
