Could Big Pharma and Big Healthcare turn against Republians?

It seems very likely that with the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) being fully impelemented and ingrained within society, that big business may actually turn against the Republicans for trying to repeal the law.

As part of the cost-sharing reduction, the federal government pays part of the premium for those whose income is up to two and a half times the poverty threshold ($29,175 for an individual). The Congressional Budget Office estimates that these payments could equal as much as $175 billion over the next 10 years. These payments are at issue in the Boehner lawsuit, as well as a case that is currently at the Supreme Court of the United States.

Both of these cases could directly affect health insurance companies’ bottom lines.
