U.S. Supreme Court Rejects Republican-Led States’ Challenge to the ACA

In what almost certainly will be the last significant legal challenge to the Affordable Care Act, the U.S. Supreme Court today dismissed on procedural grounds a lawsuit led by Republican state officials. In a 7–2 opinion, the court ruled that the plaintiffs did not show a sufficient injury to their interests to give them standing to sue. In so ruling, the court sidestepped the plaintiffs’ argument that Congress’s repeal of the tax on individuals who do not buy health insurance converted the mandate from a lawful tax into an unconstitutional penalty requiring the whole law to be struck down. The court’s ruling leaves the ACA intact in its entirety, including the employer mandate.
