“If” it works? The White House might find that level of uncertainty highly illogical.
Democrats have asked what Republicans (who are “scared it might succeed”) will call “Obamacare” if it works, implying that the GOP might try to take ownership of the law when it’s super successful, or something.
What isn’t asked often is what Democrats might call Obamacare if it turns out to be the train wreck even some Dems have predicted might be.
@TheRealNimoy What if it fails, as all indications point to?

Success has many fathers, as Nimoy pointed out, but in this case failure would be a multitrillion dollar orphan with four part-time jobs.
