As we told you yesterday, a federal judge has ruled that key parts of the Affordable Care Act are unconstitutional, but the Obamacare law will remain in place pending appeal of the ruling. Vox’s Ezra Klein predicted the Democrats’ next step:
I don't think this kind of nonsense is going to kill the Affordable Care Act. But the continued assault on Obamacare is very much why Democrats are going to pass some version of Medicare-for-All next time they hold power.

Did anybody not see that coming? As a matter of fact, that move has already been telegraphed:

"Democrats will have to pass fully socialized medicine because Republicans haven't gone along with the last few steps toward fully socialized medicine" – scumbags who swore up & down that no, of COURSE the next step after Obamacare wouldn't be fully socialized medicine https://t.co/oSoekPMWAE

It’s not like the next attempted step wasn’t made abundantly clear.
Also, court rulings are to be celebrated, unless they’re not:
