Ramesh Ponnuru runs through some options for Republicans eager to take on Obamacare next year if they take back the House. He thinks this is their best bet following the Senate's blocking or Obama's vetoing repeal:

The strategy Jim Capretta recommends in the new National Review: Move bills that undo parts of Obamacare, such as the cuts in Medicare Advantage, and pay for them by delaying implementation of the rest of Obamacare. I think it would be politically costly for the Democrats to oppose such bills, and would nicely set up the Obamacare debate for the 2012 election. It makes sense as part of a long-term strategy for repeal.
