everyone thinks Gorsuch is a deeply principled jurist but he dissented in this case, which means he fully bought one of the most clown show arguments of all time https://t.co/FGzLnOdfN6
The Affordable Care Act stands. Justice BREYER writes the majority opinion. He's joined by the other two liberals (Sotomayor & Kagan) as well as three conservatives (Roberts, Thomas, & Barrett). Alito and Gorsuch dissent.
Dissenters in allowing Obamacare to stand were Alito and Gorsuch.
BREAKING: Supreme Court upholds Obamacare on 7-2 vote. Says states and individuals lack standing to challenge. Alito, Gorsuch dissent.
CNN: Supreme Court dismisses challenge to Obamacare, 7-2, leaving the law in place.
Breyer, Roberts, Thomas, Sotomayor, Kagan, Kavanaugh and Barrett vote to reject the GOP-led states’ effort to topple the law. Alito and Gorsuch dissent.
Amy Comey Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas John Roberts and of course the three liberals all voted to uphold Obamacare.
Only Alito and Gorsuch voted against.
SCOTUS is really a body of the Left.
I’m extremely happy that the Supreme Court upheld the ACA but let me add that Justice Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch can fuck all the way off for voting against healthcare during a pandemic.
Alito and Gorsuch adopted the view that after *repeatedly failing* to repeal the ACA and explicitly abandoning the project, Congress showed it really intended to destroy the entire bill because one faction of one party maybe had it in mind when they voted on a tax bill https://t.co/QA5nR156xU
7 to 2 is considered a wide bipartisan margin by which the Supreme Court just rejected the latest challenge to Obamacare. It said Texas and other individual plaintiffs lack sufficient injury (standing) to sue. Only Alito and Gorsuch dissent. Breyer wrote the opinion.
My God, Alito and Gorsuch.
The Supreme Court upholds Obamacare 7-2 (Alito & Gorsuch dissent) affecting 23 million persons - opinion upholding act by my favorite justice Breyer - defeating effort by Tyrant Trump and by Red states to repeal the Act -https://t.co/5ZCvrWqO6W
Today's SCOTUS is increasingly looking like a 3-3-3 Court: three progressives (Breyer, Kagan, Sotomayor), three center-conservatives (Roberts, Kavanaugh, Barrett), three hard-right conservatives (Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch).
Alito's dissent in ACA case isnt surprising - he's the worst, most political justice ever. But THIS one -he not only says Texas has standing by arguing something TX didnt, then declares he would have killed the ACA based on his own arguments. I'm surprised Gorsuch joined, though.
Alito and Gorsuch would have invalidated the entire ACA.
Alito & Gorsuch are the only two Justices that did the right thing! Who agrees?

BREAKING. Supreme Court upholds the ACA in a 7 to 2 Ruling. The two Judges who dissented are Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. (Source: MSNBC Live)
Perhaps Alito and Gorsuch would like to surrender the free healthcare that we buy for them.
Justices Alito and Gorsuch supported taking away our healthcare.
It was a 7-2 ruling, with only Justices Neil Gorsuch and Samuel Alito dissenting. The ruling means the ACA is upheld, preserving the landmark health care law and ensuring that millions of Americans will be able to keep their insurance plans. https://t.co/gtnmt3LPsN
In Fulton, there were five votes to create special religious rights that judges would enforce at their discretion: Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch, Barrett, Kavanaugh.
But Barrett & Kavanaugh were convinced to join a more limited holding for now.
Bad times lie ahead. https://t.co/7buC3Uogjv
SCOTUS UPHOLDS OBAMACARE -- 7-2
Alito & Gorsuch dissenting
Thank you #SCOTUS

A clarification to the first tweet here - it was a unanimous decision by SCOTUS against Philadelphia, but not a unanimous *opinion* — Alito/Thomas/Gorsuch joined the judgment, not the majority opinion written by Chief Justice Roberts https://t.co/bRy6l2R4Ku

Correction: Gorsuch and Alito are the two that dissented.
Inside me there are two wolves: one overcome with relief that the ACA survived and one that will never stop being angry at people who think it's a good thing for Neil Gorsuch to be on the supreme court
For all the conservatives who acted like Dems opposing Gorsuch was a mortal sin that justified McConnell going nuclear on SCOTUS like it was nothing, let it be noted that he is a bigger partisan hack than Thomas, and Good Lord is that saying something. https://t.co/i9XYJ27n2g
I don’t understand why the SCOTUS Catholics didn’t have to recuse themselves from Fulton vs. City of Philadelphia case. Roberts, Thomas, Alito, Sotomayor, Kavenaugh, Barrett: all PRACTICING Catholics. Gorsuch was raised Catholic. WTF? If it was Scientology they’d have had to. 🤨
Alito and Gorsuch say that the Supreme Court should implement the policy goals of members of Congress who had voted to repeal the ACA entirely. (Conveniently leaving out the fact that such a proposal failed to actually pass through Congress.) https://t.co/Lv9IJQDUBZ
