When Did The Supreme Court Rule On Obamacare?
On August 12, 2011, a divided three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed Judge Vinson's decision in part: the court agreed that the mandate was unconstitutional but held that it could be severed, allowing the rest of the ACA to remain.
In a landmark decision on the Affordable Care Act, the Supreme Court ruled that the individual mandate was constitutional as a tax, and therefore, the rest of the ACA could remain in place. This decision was reached in the case of National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius, 567 U.S. 519 (2012). The ruling was 5-4, with Chief Justice John Roberts joining the four liberal justices in upholding the constitutionality of the mandate as a tax. This decision has been a major milestone in the ongoing debates about the ACA and its future in the United States.
