The response of the Supreme Court will be very revealing --- By their
previous "arguments" even Roberts should now be a vote to declare the act
unconstitutional because the ONLY basis for its constitutionality according
to Roberts (who was the swing vote last time -- Kennedy siding with the
right wing shits) was the ability of the US government to tax.
Unless Roberts can figure out a way to wiggle out of his previous written
opinion, it will fall to Gorsuch or Kavanaugh to determine the
"constitutionality" of the ACA ---
Given their predilections I would guess that as a matter of law (as they
see it) they have to vote with Thomas and Alito.
SOOO --- if Roberts decides that for political reasons, the ACA
must be upheld it will be a perfect example of what Mr. Dooley said,
"The Supreme Court listens to the illection [sic!] returns!"
FROM A PRACTICAL POINT OF VIEW, the Court may just DELAY ruling until after
the election --- in the light of the disruption that such a change would
entail --- they might even figure out a way to kick the can all the way
till a vaccine for COVID-19 becomes available ...
