Legal Issues
Individual mandate
provision requires:
all Americans to obtain health insurance
or pay a penalty,
Mandate is not authorized under the Commerce Clause nonetheless a valid exercise of Congress’s power under the Taxing Clause because
Under Article I of the constitution, Congress is given the power to regulate Commerce among several states.
Medicaid expansion provision of the ACA violates the Constitution by threatening states with the loss of their existing Medicaid funding if they decline to comply with the expansion.
The Decision
Affirmed in part and reversed in part, 5-4
Five Justices agree that the individual mandate is constitutional
the Chief Justice, Justices Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan
Seven Justices agree that the Medicaid expansion violates the Constitution
the Chief Justice and Justices Breyer and Kagan, Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas, and Alito
What's the impact?
Under the ACA, the Individual Mandate
this provision regulates the assurance to maintain minimum essential coverage of every applicable individual.
Under the ACA, the Medicaid expansion
the goal of the Act is to provide near-universal medical coverage, and without 100% State participation in the Medicaid program, attainment of this goal would be difficult if not impossible.
Three interlocking reforms
Guaranteed issue and community rating
Tax Breaks

Plain English
Absorb, cleaning up
Congresses misspoken words
Employers mandated to provide coverage for contraception
Hobby Lobby, a faith-based company objected
Burdened their religious beliefs
Violation of Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA)

Court ruled 5-4 in favor of Hobby Lobby
Under RFRA, religious convictions of a company’s owners could apply to the company
For profit “closely held corporations” can be exempt from providing coverage under the ACA
Mandate burdens the exercise of religion
Recognized the religious "personhood" of corporations

Colloquially Known as Obamacare
