The Atlantic

The Supreme Court’s ruling in King v. Burwell, whatever it may be, won’t mark the end of Obamacare. On the other hand, Obamacare itself was never intended to be the last word on the country’s healthcare needs. At the state level — where, unlike Congress, elected officials actually have to govern — Republicans are already proposing and even enacting their own approaches to healthcare reform. The likely result is a national consensus, at some point in the future, on a plan that both parties could have agreed upon a long time in the past.
