Let's discuss that. The answer to your question is technically yes. However, the way it was put in place was illegal. The Senate stripped out a House bill and inserted the Obamacare language. (Because the penalty was a tax and only the House can initiate a bill that includes a tax.) Then, the Supreme Court took that language and modified it further. (Which is outside their authority.)

Supporting that would be like saying, "I will enforce every rule you make according to this process." Then someone else comes along and slips a rule in some other way and claims you're a liar because you don't enforce the new rule they wrote on a napkin and taped into the rulebook.
