Will insurance companies stop Republicans from undoing the mandate?

While undoing the mandate might only take 50+ Senators due to the SCOTUS decision labeling it a tax, special interests could possibly stop it from happening. Namely, insurance companies which donate a lot to the GOP. Check out this post, some interesting and potentially unfortunate possibilities there: http://www.nextnewdeal.net/why-repub...money-politics

Hopefully there will be enough backbone to go on and get rid of that thing. But I would not bet on it either way. To many sellouts in government to be sure about anything.
