Supreme Court Appears Likely to Save Most of the ACA

Most of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) appeared likely to survive as the Supreme Court heard oral arguments over the law’s individual mandate. According to reports, two members of the court’s conservative majority–Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh–suggested they’re unlikely to throw out the entire healthcare law, as Republican attorneys general and the Trump administration have urged. Their votes would be enough to save it. “It does seem fairly clear that the proper remedy would be to sever the mandate and leave the rest of the law in place,” Kavanaugh said.  The article was sourced using Axios.
