At the time, the need to take out health insurance or pay a fine was challenged. The Supreme Court classified this provision as a tax. Congress, which was in control of the Republican Party at the time, reduced the sentence to zero. On this basis, they now argued in court that there is no question of no more taxes because there is no more income – and without division, the whole law would be null and void.

Democrat Joe Biden, a former Democrat, welcomed the court ruling. “The biggest victory for the American people,” the US president wrote on Twitter on Thursday. Millions of people depend on the terms of their health insurance.
