GIVING THE BACKWARDS PUPILS AN EXTENSION:

Health-Law Ruling Could Prompt Some States to Act (LOUISE RADNOFSKY and  JESS BRAVIN, March 5, 2015, WSJ)

Justice Samuel Alito 's suggestion that the Supreme Court could delay for months the impact of a decision to gut the health law revives the possibility that at least a dozen states could take action to limit the effect of such a ruling.

Justice Alito's remarks came Wednesday during oral arguments in a case that seeks to halt the use of tax credits to offset the cost of insurance premiums for residents in about three dozen states that don't operate their own insurance exchanges and use the federal HealthCare.gov site instead. Challengers in the case argue the law allows the tax credits only for insurance buyers in states with their own exchanges--currently just 13 states.

When even Justice Alito wants to mend it, not end it, the fight is over.
