The Supreme Court kept the Affordable Care Act alive Thursday, ruling in a 7-2 decision that Texas and 17 other states – plus two individuals – lacked standing to challenge its constitutionality.
The states had argued that the law’s individual mandate was unconstitutional once it no longer carried a penalty because it had been justified as falling under the congressional power of taxation. They also claimed that the rest of the law could not survive without the mandate.
The article goes on to state the following:
“We do not reach these questions of the Act’s validity, however, for Texas and the other plaintiffs in this suit lack the standing necessary to raise them,” Justice Stephen Breyer wrote in the court’s opinion.

SCOTUS Correspondent Steven Mazie tweeted, “In a concurrence, Justice Thomas makes it quite clear he is no fan of the ACA or of the Court’s previous two decisions saving it. But agrees the plaintiffs have no standing. In dissent, Justices Alito and Gorsuch coin a new term to describe the 2012, 2015 and 2021 SCOTUS decisions refusing to toss Obamacare: ‘our epic Affordable Care Act trilogy.'”

Todd Ruger tweeted, “New: The 2010 health care law survived its third major Supreme Court challenge. The justices rule 7-2 that the states didn’t have standing to bring the lawsuit. Breyer writes. Does not reach merits of question about individual mandate.”
