The Supreme Court has upheld the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act in a decision released this morning. 

The Republican state plaintiffs, led by Texas, have failed to show they have standing to attack as unconstitutional the ACA’s minimum essential coverage provision, the justices said. 

“Therefore, we reverse the Fifth Circuit’s judgment in respect to standing, vacate the judgment, and remand the case with instructions to dismiss,” they said.

Justice Stephen Breyer delivered the majority opinion, in which Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Clarence Thomas, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett joined. 

Justice Samuel Alito filed the dissenting opinion in which Judge Neil Gorsuch joined.
