The US Supreme Court on Thursday rejected a Republican bid that had been backed by former President Donald Trump’s administration to invalidate the ObamaCare health care law, ruling that Texas and other challengers had no legal standing to file their lawsuit.The 7-2 ruling authored by liberal Justice Stephen Breyer did not decide broader legal questions raised in the case about whether a key provision in the law, which is formally called the Affordable Care Act, was unconstitutional and, if so, whether the rest of the statute should be struck down.The provision, called the “individual mandate,”

It is no longer about constitutional law, it’s about the chaos that would ensue if Scotus overturned the ACÁ. The Supremes have become a bunch of political cowards.

I would like to know what Clarence Thomas' opinion was on this since he voted against it. I trust his opinion more than any other justice, and suspect if he didn't support, there were some glaring flaws in the case as presented.

If a law affects me, why wouldn't I have standing? Since the Commerce clause has been perverted, why is this allowed to stand?

FTA: "...Republicans fiercely opposed ObamaCare when it was proposed, failed to repeal it when they controlled both chambers of Congress..." And we know why they failed to repeal it. Thanks, traitor John McCain. Rot in he//.

If the AG's of states do not "have standing", no person on planet Earth could possibly have standing. This is just Crooked Roberts' way of saying " we are going to let Congress do anything it wants, and you can't get us to rule on this matter, EVER".

This seems frustrating, but if Justice Thomas concurs I have to think it is a reasonable decision. "Standing" as a legal concept is important as at least some minimal check on anyone litigating anything with anyone.

President Trump went to the wall for Kavanaugh and Barrett, and the democrats fought him all the way. Both are proving themselves to be as staunch conservatives as was Ruth B Ginsberg. When Trump returns to the White House, he needs to review the people who advised him to appoint Kavanaugh and Barrett so he can be sure to never seek their advice again. The reality is that the liberals hold a 7-2 advantage on the Supreme Court.

Both the Federal District Court and the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals held that the Plaintiffs had standing in this case, styled California et al vs. Texas et al. The Supreme Court "Held: Plaintiffs do not have standing to challenge §5000A(a)’s minimum essential coverage provision because they have not shown a past or future injury fairly traceable to defendants’ conduct enforcing the specific statutory provision they attack as unconstitutional."

Why can't there be 2 plans? Leave O'care there, to exist and stink. The new (Trump) plan would be a better plan. People can choose which plan suits them best. When people see the O'care is pathetic, they will choose the better plan. O'care will die a slow painful death because no one will want it.

The latest Supreme Court excuse for not actually ruling on anything lately seems to be "standing". Who exactly does have "standing" to challenge the legality of Obamacare? Nobody it seems. Same with who has/had "standing" to challenge the election questions? Nobody.

obamacare is unconstitutional on at least 2 counts. # 1, it WAS NOT APPROVED BY CONGRESS. To become law, a bill must pass both houses of congress, and this one did not. It passed in one form or another in both houses but the FINAL BILL, the one that became law, was passed in the house and sent to the senate where it had to be amended to get the votes. THEN it was sent back to the house as amended, which means it is now a new bill. The house DID NOT VOTE on the amended bill, it was DEEMED passed. dim-0s said, RECONSILLIATION. That made it a tax bill. Tax bills MUST, to become law, come from the house of reps, this one came from the senate. Also, it was amended several times by obama only after it became law, with NO VOTES in either house.

Middle income families are lashing out against Joe Biden's punitive new tax plan that would claim a large chunk of the amount someone leaves to their kids when they die just because it has gone up in value over the course of their lifetime. The harsh new tax - dubbed Biden's 'death tax' - is hidden in his American Families Plan and it's receiving ferocious backlash. It proposes that when someone dies, any asset they leave behind that has appreciated in value by more than $1million since the time they bought it should be taxed. The tax rate would go as high as 40% - double

The COVD-19 pandemic gave numerous state election officials an excuse to implement far-reaching changes to our election processes. Those changes obviously made our systems vulnerable to fraud. States implemented massive mail-in balloting at the same time they relaxed ballot security and voter identification. They even extended the voting periods -- to give the criminals more time to commit their fraud. All these changes were unconstitutional. (snip) The Supreme Court declined to get involved.

Bishop Rhoades, who chairs the group’s doctrinal committee, conceded the notion “was in the original proposal” for the document, he added, “We never meant it as it’s been interpreted in many media sources.”
