It is the choice of the politicians (and their supporters) to make it political. Conservatives proposed it (late 1980s/early 1990s). Obama got it passed in 2010. Conservatives actively opposed it (Hillary Clinton in the 1990s) even when they implemented it (Romney) and it worked (MA). They took it to the US Supreme Court, which determined it was legal. So, claiming "political" is nonsense because that is a known history that can not be refuted.

You are making the mistake of assuming that everyone in a certain political party is a conservative.
