I know several conservatives who used to want repeal, but since have gotten ill, or had a family member get ill, and they find out just how expensive it can be even with an 80/20 plan...
They might have a better chance of modifying it to cover catastrophic (meaning expensive) care only.

a few more fyi's from your friendly prof
rcp moved washington today, rossi's raced ahead to +7 and +3 point leads, according to most recent survey usa and rasmussen, respectively
RealClearPolitics - 2010 Election Maps - Senate No Toss Ups
that'd leave us TWO short, with nevada, wisconsin, california, connecticut and maryland still available
rossi, for your information, was participant in the closest gub election in us history
he was actually certified claimant in 04 until a second hand-recount rather ripped him off (kinda like stuart smalley in minnesota)
ms gregoire beat him more handily in the 08 rematch, the year of the one, 53 to 47
but things have changed pretty far since then, which, of course, is the point
in wisconsin, which is essentially even, self funder ron johnson is outspending senator feingold, 3 to 1

"typically cautious" savant sabato speaks
"Conditions have deteriorated badly for Democrats over the summer. The economy appears rotten, with little chance of a substantial comeback by November 2nd. Unemployment is very high, income growth sluggish, and public confidence quite low. The Democrats' self-proclaimed 'Recovery Summer' has become a term of derision, and to most voters—fair or not—it seems that President Obama has over-promised and under-delivered..."sabato's analysis of the senate only confirms verbatim what's been pointed out above"Given what we can see at this moment, Republicans have a good chance to win the House by picking up as many as 47 seats, net. This is a 'net' number since the GOP will probably lose several of its own congressional districts in Delaware, Hawaii, and Louisiana. This estimate, which may be raised or lowered by Election Day, is based on a careful district-by-district analysis, plus electoral modeling based on trends in President Obama's Gallup job approval rating and the Democratic-versus-Republican congressional generic ballot. If anything, we have been conservative in estimating the probable GOP House gains, if the election were being held today."
