Earlier today, The Supreme Court ruled against 18 GOP-led states.
The states were challenging Obamacare.
The court ruled against them 7-2 and claimed they didn’t have standing.
Alito and Gorsuch were the only two justices to dissent.
The Supreme Court slammed Texas and other Republican-led states’ attempts on Thursday to take down Obamacare.
The 18 Republican states challenged whether the individual mandate, a requirement by law for people to purchase healthcare, can be cut from the rest of the law or if they can repeal the legislation in its entirety.
The court voted 7-2 that the plaintiffs were not required to pay anything under the mandate provision and therefore didn’t have the standing to bring the challenge to court.
“We conclude that the plaintiffs in this suit failed to show a concrete, particularized injury fairly traceable to the defendants’ conduct in enforcing the specific statutory provision they attack as unconstitutional. They have failed to show that they have standing to attack as unconstitutional the Act’s minimum essential coverage provision,” Justice Stephen Breyer wrote in his majority opinion.
“Therefore, we reverse the Fifth Circuit’s judgment in respect to standing, vacate the judgment, and remand the case with instructions to dismiss,” Breyer wrote.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton vowed to continue to fight Obamacare.
