Joe Palmore was featured in The Washington Post’s coverage of the Supreme Court hearing on the Affordable Care Act after several pivotal justices hinted they won’t strike it down.
“My sense is that there are likely at least 5 votes (3 liberals + Chief & Kavanaugh) for finding the ‘mandate’ severable from the rest of the ACA. The presumption in favor of severability will likely be too steep a hill for the challengers to climb,” Joe tweeted in closing. “I’m less sure on where the Court will come down on standing and the merits. But those are questions of largely academic interest here. Severability is the big fight, and my sense is that the ACA will win it and survive this case.”
