Earlier today, the Supreme Court partially revived one of the many challenges to the Affordable Care Act filed shortly after the law was signed. This is a much smaller deal than it seems. As ThinkProgress explained when the justices hinted that such an order was coming last month, today’s order is likely routine housecleaning after a lower court decided some, but not all, of the issues in a pending health care case. The most likely outcome of today’s order will be that the lower court will consider the undecided issues in this case, reject the plaintiffs’ arguments, and that the Affordable Care Act will continue to stand.
