The United States Supreme Court is upholding the Affordable Care Act again.
The decision was 7-2, with most of the conservative Justices voting along with the liberal Justices, ruling that Republican-led states did not have the legal standing to challenge the case on the grounds it was causing harm.
The two dissenting votes were from Justice Neil Gorsuch and Sam Alito.
This ruling by SCOTUS did not involve the merits of the landmark healthcare law pushed by then-President Barack Obama and liberal Democrats.
