    Many economists would say that the mandate is needed to make pre-existing condition regulation work (at least long term) because people might only take coverage if they're sick.

    The court could decide that Congress passed the bill with that economic argument in mind. If so, the mandate might not be severable from the pre-existing conditions regulation.
