The future of the health care system is now back where it should be, out of the hands of judges and into those of voters. With the constitutional question about President Obama’s health care law now settled, the public will have a chance to examine Mitt Romney’s claims that it is terrible for the country. Based on his remarks on Thursday, they will not have much to go on.
Mr. Romney’s speech was clearly not the one he wanted to give, and it showed. He stumbled by reminding people that the Supreme Court did not proclaim the law to be a good one, implying the constitutional question was a minor issue. The court’s role, of course, is not to judge the wisdom of the laws that Congress passes, as much as Mr. Romney might wish it had.
