    The ACA passed the House 219-212, with 34 Dems and all the GOP members voting against. It only passed the Senate using reconciliation because there were not 60 votes in favor in the Senate.

      But it's still inaccurate to say it "passed" by reconciliation.  The bill itself passed with 60 votes.  The fixes were passed through reconciliation

      Either way, it wasn't SCOTUS that brought the ACA.

      But thank you for the correction.
