"If the Obama Administration loses in the Supreme Court, the political pain will fall almost exclusively on the President and his Party. To paraphrase Colin Powell and the Pottery Barn rule, President Obama will have broken health care, so he owns it."

Jeffery Toobin invokes the Pottery Barn rule in writing about the King v. Burwell case and says that Obama will take the blame for the bad parts of the law.

I'm not so sure. If the Court finds in favor of the Plaintiffs, the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) will push the idea that the Republicans must figure out how to fix the law.
