25. I would disagree about that.

On one hand, the conservative majority will be hostile to any major policy advanced by the Obama Administration. So it will be overturned.
But on the other hand, this particular policy is a massive and permanent bonanza to powerful financial sector corporations, amounting to a first ever POLL TAX levied by an oligarchical faction of private businesses. A fully Privatized Tax on every head that draws breath within the United States, forever, and all enforcement costs put on the government! That is a Republican Wet Dream. Only preemptive war against the USSR could possibly have wrung a bigger, blinding orgasm from the old elephant's diseased ballsack. So it will not be overturned.
But on the other other hand, only Republicans are allowed to do bestow such favors upon the private sector! The plan is THEIR PLAN: their thinktanks hatched it, their hacks first proposed it and were first to implement it at the state level. This is an intolerable encroachment on their turf. If Democrats take credit for it, they will enduringly reap the lion's share of the Insurance Cartel's baksheesh. So it will be overturned.
But on the other other other hand, if the malignant Privatized Tax scheme imposed on us by the corporate totalitarians were to be overturned, that would leave something public in nature, like Medicare For All, aka Single Payer left as the only alternative that is practical and Constitutionally viable. THAT IS THE GOP NIGHTMARE. So it will be upheld.
There's just no knowing what they'll do.
