The Affordable Care Act survived yet another conservative challenge in the U.S. Supreme Court, which upheld the law once again on a technicality.
A 7-2 majority ruled the Republicans plaintiffs in the California v. Texas, No. 19-840, lacked standing to sue, but did not look at the signature provision requiring most Americans to buy health insurance or be penalized.
Obamacare fans rejoiced at the news that a heavily conservative court had not ended coverage for tens of millions of Americans, which striking down the law could do.
