    Did it originate in the Senate? If so, why didn't SCOTUS have an Article One issue with that?

    Has someone started a thread on this aspect already? If so, I apologize - the search engine doesn't work for 3-letter words.

    I thought it was the Senate. Wiki seems to agree with me:

    That's when they voted on it, NOT when it originated. If it was a problem, don't you think the SC would have addressed it?

    I'm not sure what to expect from this court.








    .... reading a little more ....


    Now I see what happened. The Senate took a tax-related bill from the House which had nothing to do with ACA and completely changed it. What a bastardization of the intent of Article One.

    USSC doesn't entertain points not brought up in arguments.

    Appears that they took the shell of the Senate legislation from a House bill.

    Like taking an egg from one species and replacing the contents with the genetic material of another.
