Supporters of Obamacare, including the president himself, say that once the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the law’s individual mandate wasn’t a mandate at all, but a tax, and therefore lawful under the Constitution, that was the end of it.

The Affordable Care Act indeed survived its legal challenge, despite Chief Justice John Robert’s bit of creative writing to make the law “constitutional.” But that doesn’t mean it is a matter of settled law.

At least, that’s the way one federal judge sees it. As reported by Britain’s Daily Mail:

The Affordable Care Act forbids the federal government from enforcing the law in any state that opted out of setting up its own health care exchange, according to a group of small businesses whose lawsuit got a key hearing Monday in federal court.

The Obama administration, according to their lawsuit, has ignored that language in the law, enforcing all of its provisions even in states where the federal government is operating the insurance marketplaces on the error-plagued Healthcare.gov website.
