• The law that would not die

    Dismissed by pundits as too ambitious or too timid,

    Struggled in the Senate to get a 60th vote,

    Looked dead with Senator Brown’s election in MA,

    Somehow passed in reconciliation with the House consenting,

    Battered by more than two years of litigation,

    Surviving in the Supreme Court by the narrowest of margins,

    And now, will be implemented in full on January 1, 2014 due to the re-election of

    President Barak Obama,

    Please regard, with amazement,

    the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Pub. L. 111-148
