'Your papers, please' must never be heard in America

Like a sick patient who somehow always rallies, President Obama's health care law survived another scare Tuesday with Mr. Obama's defeat of Republican challenger Mitt Romney on Tuesday.
Several issues are being distorted in the wake of the Supreme Court's contradictory, backdoor ruling that up-held President Obama's health care law on a disputed word definition.
The federal appeals court ruling that struck down the centerpiece of Obamacare has dealt a massive, possibly fatal blow to the government-imposed health care system passed by a Democrat-controlled Congress over bitter public opposition.
"ObamaCare is wrong for families, wrong for patients, wrong for business, and wrong for our children's futures." That's the thesis, laid out on the first page of the must-read "Why ObamaCare is Wrong for America," a powerful book co-written by four battle-tested veterans of Washington's health policy battles.
"They've been holding back on a huge overload of regulations because of the election," said Grace-Marie Turner, president of the Galen Institute, a health care policy research organization. "They really did turn off the buzz saw for a few months for the election. We've been in this kind of lull before the onslaught really begins."
"In a presidential election, first of all there are lots of other issues, but Romney really didn't get into why he didn't like the law or what he would do himself," said Ms. Turner.
