Scalia: Whole Law Could Go Down

And that's a wrap. The Supreme Court ended Obamacare arguments with a discussion about whether striking down the individual mandate would mean invalidating the whole law. According to the AP, a slim majority of justices signaled that they would let the law stand without the mandate. Conservative Justice Scalia, however, strongly stated that the whole law should fall if the mandate goes down. Meanwhile, Kevin Russell of SCOTUS Blog reports that the liberal justices were very engaged in the severability argument—suggesting that they're worried about the fate of the mandate.
