Politico says it's bad news for Willard if the mandate is struck down.
Worst case: If justices repeal either the mandate or the whole law, Romney will have to get specific about his own plans. He may also have to explain why he supports a ruling that knocks out popular elements of the health law.I think it's bad for Willard if that happens, or the whole law is struck down (which I think is what they're going to do). But ... "get specific"? Please. He hasn't laid out any real plans for anything -- and he won't do so. He is running a uniformly negative campaign against an imaginary Obama, and that's the game plan.
