Obamacare tougher to launch than Medicare
President Barack Obama says he's not worried that all the Obamacare fights will kill the law — because people fought the creation of Medicare and Social Security too, and now they're more popular than ever. Democrats have always wanted to believe Obamacare would follow the same pattern: Opponents tried to block passage of the new programs, but once they became law, the public saw the benefits and the opposition faded away. But this time there's a difference. Political opposition to Obamacare is still as strong as ever, more than three years after it was signed into law.
