The ACA is Here to Stay.

And I burst into tears when I saw the news. 6-3, and thank you CJ Roberts and Justice Kennedy for your reading abilities.

From the Times article:
Chief Justice Roberts wrote that the words must be understood as part of a larger statutory plan. “Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them,” he added. “If at all possible, we must interpret the act in a way that is consistent with the former, and avoids the latter.” 
“In this instance,” he wrote, “the context and structure of the act compel us to depart from what would otherwise be the most natural reading of the pertinent statutory phrase.”
