    Amy Howe:
    The Court does not reach severability issues, having upheld the mandate 5-4.
    Sorry, I don't have any verifiable sources. I can tell you though that Roberts is giving the majority opinion.

    Typical mindnumbingly stupid far-right comment -- 'the left of the court'... He's a conservative judge and he made a conservative ruling.

    Jesus, you people eat that Fox News / Limbaugh crap up like candy.


    the Medicaid expansion was "limited but not invalidated"
    Good. People in red states will get sick an die off.

    We cannot afford a grossly incompetent, functionally illiterate body in charge of upholding the rule of law as written. They are negligent in their duty, and there is no little hope of remedy. The system is broken beyond repair.
    Which is why the Commerce Clause claim was thrown out.

    My take on things based on limited knowledge that may be incorrect.

    The individual mandate was ruled as a tax, and a tax cannot be struck down as unconstitutional until it is implemented (which it has not yet). Obama also campaigned that this was definitely not a tax, which means he was either ignorant of what a tax really is, or he was lying in order to gain support and disprove accusations by Republicans that the mandate was a tax increase.

    Part of the law mandated that states expand Medicaid. I believe that this was struck down as unconstitutional.

    Yes. They do not have to expand their medicare/medicaid programs.
