Sadly, however, the reaction for the court signals clearly that ObamaCare, or just as well, for all intensive purposes, WaxmanCare, is still not selling well.
Polls shortly after Chief Justice Roberts delivered his ruling suggested that crucial swing states like Florida were not happy with the court's upholding the law.

Only 23% of respondents think that WaxmanCare will improve their healthcare, while 38% believe otherwise.
Fox News reported the following:
When asked directly if the requirement to buy health insurance is a violation of individual rights protected by the Constitution, 60 percent of voters say yes -- almost identical to the number who think the court should overturn at least that part of the health care law. Nearly nine of 10 Republicans (87 percent), two-thirds of independents (66 percent) and a third of Democrats (33 percent) think the individual mandate is a violation of individual rights.

For a more nonpartisan polling source, the San Francisco Chronicle reports that out of 514 polled, 45% opposed the ruling, and 48% believed that the cost of their healthcare was going to increase.
In 2010, the Democratic party in California withstood the grand shellacking which swept the Republicans back into the power after four years of opposition. This election cycle may prove the death knell, ringing two years later, for the liberal stalwarts -- including Henry Waxman -- who insist on growing government and taxation while harming the taxpayers and shrinking private enterprise.
