They cannot repeal it now. Can. Not.
No, the answer is it will take the bad law in some people’s faces draining their wallets before they wake their lazy butts up and vote something other than Democrat.
It is hard to fight a party that buys votes for power using the Treasury.

Why not NOW!!
How, exactly, would you propose they do that?
The House would vote to repeal it. Then what?

The House passed a bill to repeal ObamaKKKare. The Senate is ruled by Democrats ~ no legislation gets sent to the floor without the approval of Harry Reid.
I presume everybody knows how the Constitution works in regard to passage of legislation.

“Why not now?”
Another question ask: why not in the 2012 Senate election? Why not nationalize the election back then, saying “Vote in Republicans and we can and will repeal the tax. Period.”

Never let common sense get in the way of an opportunity to bash the GOP. The law can't be repealed without a majority in both the Senate and House of Representatives as well as a President willing to sign the repeal legislation. That is not possible until January 2017 at the earliest. As a realist, Senator McConnell is trying to create the conditions for action when and if the pieces are ever in place. But never fear, you will have ample opportunity in the intervening time to criticize him for not doing the impossible.

“Why not NOW!!”
Exactly. We have Obamacare because the elites in both parties wanted it.
Why not NOW!!
The answer is simple, and Roberts pretty much spelled it out in his appalling ruling.
The American People get the government, and legislation, they deserve.
ObamaCare is just starting to go into effect now. And is going to go fully into effect in 2014. People are feeling the pain, and realizing what really happened with a bill that needed to be passed in order to find out what was actually in it.
The American People NEED to feel the pain of this. It's a hard and bitter pill to swallow, but in electing a Congressional Democrat Majority and then the most extremist Liberal President in US history they got exactly what they deserved.
Its going to be a hail mary pass ... but once the public starts feeling the pain of ObamaCare they're going to be looking for someone to blame. The Republicans are the ones in position to capitalize on it. I think that there's a really good chance that the GOP will pick up seats in the House and take the Senate on this issue in 2014. There's even an outside chance that, combined with gun control, there'll be a political bloodletting on it.
So, in early 2015 (two years from now), the House repeals ObamaCare and sends the repeal to the Senate ... where it's repealed under Reconciliation and sent to Obama to sign or veto.
He's going to have a good number of Dem Senators from purple/red states who are up for reelection in 2016 demanding that he sign. If he chooses not to ... they may just abandon him in droves. Even to the point where we may see a couple/few Party-switchers (as we did after the 1994 election).
A veto also means that the pain persists, even increases, into 2016. It'll doom Biden, Hillary! and Cuomo for sure. It may not be enough, given the demographic shifts underway, to elect a GOP President. But it may be enough to force the Dems to find a nominee who can do what Clinton did in 1992: play Conservative in order to win.
Here's the really delicious part tho. And understand I'm not endorsing or supporting or advocating for gay marriage in saying this. At all - this is just political mechanics. But if the Supreme Court strikes down DOMA and Prop 8, and "marriage equality" is a reality and pretty much off the table as a major political issue, there may be a stampede of homosexuals and "moderates" if not into the GOP, then maybe out of the Dem Party and into Indie/Non-Aligned status where they'd see it in their interests to vote for a GOP Presidential candidate in 2016.
Like I said, it's a hail-mary pass and a long shot. But I think it's the only viable game in town right now.
