The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the health care law will further polarize the presidential and congressional elections.
Guess what: The tea party will be very, very upset about today’s action.
It will be louder than ever.
But will it be stronger and more influential than ever? That’s what we really don’t know right now.
Here’s what the Tea Party Express said today.
Here’s one reaction, asking for an investigation of Justice Elena Kagan.
And we’ll be seeing a lot more of this kind of defiance.
Thursday’s decision is going to give the tea party’s supporters a great chance to reach out to gain more allies to rally against the re-election of President Barack Obama.
We will see a lot of very mad people in the next few weeks and months, going around complaining about the court’s decision, complaining about Obama’s victory and demanding that Congress repeal the Affordable Care Act.
The tea party will ramp up its fundraising activities, railing against an “activist court.”
The tea party’s backers will declare that they simply must get more ultra-conservative men and women elected to Congress this fall.
The biggest goal will be taking over the Democratic-controlled U.S. Senate.
But in light of the court’s decision, is there a possibility that all the furor over the issue will actually die down, as states and elected officials move on to the important work of serving the American people by putting the law in place?
