Earlier last week, House Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio fired off an email to fellow Republicans warning them not to celebrate if the court overturns any parts of the law.
“No one knows what the court will decide, and none of us would presume to know,” Mr. Boehner wrote in a memo to his colleagues Thursday. “But if the court strikes down all or part of the president’s health care law, there will be no spiking of the ball.”
The anticipation is so strong that some Republicans have jumped the gun. Campaign staffers for U.S. Senate candidate Richard Mourdock of Indiana, who defeated longtime Sen. Richard G. Lugar in a Republican primary last month, prematurely released four videos that Mr. Mourdock had prepared in response to four potential rulings.
His campaign removed the videos quickly — but not before news outlets posted them on the Internet. In one video to be circulated if the court strikes down the entire law, Mr. Mourdock warns voters that his Democratic opponent, Rep. Joe Donnelly, and Mr. Obama are already “putting Obamacare 2.0 together.”
