The legal argument looks solid to me.

Obamacare was bad, and taking it to the Supreme Court won't help this time. Lying to the entire population to get a bill passed can't have good outcomes. One or two things often held up as good could have easily been legislated standalone. Now it's over, but the trend toward larger national databases of your health info will continue and expand.

Surprise, surprise. Obamacare, aka the Affordable [sic] Care Act, is dead, pending a possible Supreme Court review.

U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor in Fort Worth sided with the argument put forward by a coalition of Republican-leaning states, led by Texas, that Obamacare could no longer stand now that there's no penalty for Americans who don't buy insurance.

The U.S. Supreme Court had upheld the law in 2012, by classifying the legislation as a tax. But since Congress removed the individual mandate in 2017, O’Connor ruled, there's no way the ACA can be allowed to stand.
