But for one vote by one Justice of the Supreme Court, there would be no reason for any discussion of healthcare under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

This essay thus discusses the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius and its implications going forward.
