SCOTUS Justices appear unlikely to strike down Obamacare

Justices on the US Supreme Court signaled that they are unlikely to strike down the entire Obamacare healthcare law in a legal challenge brought by a bunch of Republican governed states, and backed by the Trump administration. Two hours of arguments were heard by the justices via teleconference, in an appeal by a coalition of Democratic-governed states to preserve the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

The justices realized that, unlike the orange clown, they do not have much security, and they will get their asses kicked if they too, turn on the people of the USA!

Nothing about bipartisanship here. This is about prescident. If they struck down the ACA over severability, which is what this case is asking for, it would strike a blow against other cases. In addition, there is the matter of Standing. The court is likely to toss it out on that alone. Allowing the current petitioners to have Standing will greatly expand how it works in all cases, which is not something SCOTUS wants to do. The petitioners are not being harmed by the lack of an individual mandate. And with Congress removing the mandate but not repealing the law, the obvious intent of Congress is that the law was to stay in place, just without the mandate. The court is not in the job of repealing laws that one party can't get enough votes to do so

If nothing else, this should provide an indication on the degree of sway Republicans and the Trump administration currently has over the SCOTUS.
