    Let 'em do it. Nobody liked the mandate and it'll just make people more determined to vote the Dems out in Nov.

    What's he up to these days? He's not the President. Is he still governor? How did that work out for him?

    I thought the SCOTUS threw out that individual mandate as unconstitutional, am I mistaken? And if so, how does any state get to resurrect it?

    But when Republicans took control of Congress and the White House last year (2017), there was perhaps no safer bet than the GOP ending the hated mandate. They stumbled at first, when the Senate failed to pass a more sweeping Obamacare repeal bill. But they stuck the repeal of the mandate into their tax bill — it actually, for technical reasons, helped pay for the tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy — and Congress passed it in December. In 2019, the mandate would end for good.

    A requiem for the individual mandate

    SCOTUS did not rule it unconstitutional as you say, but nonetheless it's gone. Which means I guess, that a state can resurrect it for their citizens, but man, it's going to cost them. New Jersey is already bleeding wealthy taxpayers leaving for other states, especially since the SALT exemption went into effect, so I dunno how they're going to make this work. If you are a millenial, would you stay in New Jersey and pay for somebody else's HCI, unless you are unemployed or at or near the poverty line? Where are they going to get the money to pay the insurance companies for their losses, and there will be big losses. No payments, you say? Then no coverage, you won't have any health care insurance companies left in NJ.
