That's a problem, given that the government isn't allowed to force people to buy insurance beyond imposing taxes which they can't use force to collect.
States at least have the advantage of a general police power. They could actually arrest people for not buying insurance if they wanted to.
Wonder why it is that Obamabots continue to buy the Obama rhetoric and ignores that the rhetoric is nothing but downright campaign lies.

The answer to these questions in your third paragraph, incidentally, is empathy. Try it some time. But before you go thinking I'm trying to pass myself off as some kind of saint, I should point out that I'm subject to the same system. If I can make it work better for you, I'm making it work better for me too.
I might need a new hip some day, dude. So yeah, the TEN THOUSAND ****ING PERCENT markup concerns me.

I wouldn't exactly call it a loss. Two major precedents were established by the ACA decision: first, the government could not regulate non-commerce, and second, the government could not force states to do things on penalty of having already appropriated money taken away.
There are other parts of the law which are being challenged in court, such as the contraception mandate and subsidies in states that did not set up exchanges.
So yeah, the law will stand, but many aspects of it were unconstitutional and more will likely be found and stripped from the law.
