attorney general thank you it's split here.
We think this stands after you and your colleagues.
Made this last and final case before the Supreme Court.
I think we made a tremendous gates that the years that the president Obama's Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional.
Our case -- that it's unconstitutional on two different Brown's.
Individual mandate -- reporters every American to go out of the marketplace.
And buy a health insurance policy from a commercial vendor.
And also the -- Medicaid expansion.
Which which unconstitutionally.
Year robs states of their authority under Medicaid.
-- I think the latter was sort of like.
To 800 pound gorilla in the room that no one really it is -- appreciated.
Just a practical nature.
Of getting this implemented individual states on the Medicaid front -- leaving aside the mandate issue.
I think the justices really all of it sounds like -- on this Democrats -- the -- -- but very you know.
They all seem to be very ended this subject when reminded -- It was very actually I was there today for the argument.
And this is an issue that.
A lot of commentators have written off they base that none of the lower or global or not on the mandate here right right right.

Or the Medicaid expansion unconstitutional.
Then does do they have to find the rest of the law unconstitutional.
And our argument is -- they do because.
Congress created this whole.
Affordable Care Act as a system.
It's got a system that works on the demand side.
With the individual mandate to make sure there's enough demand for help the church but it also had a lot of provisions that work on the supply side.
To make sure there's a large enough supply of the church to meet the demands.
If you take away the demand side it leaves just the supply side of the -- laws on bear on balance been untenable.
Giveaway weren't so we did this right we just on down the road a couple of years old and already again yeah normal -- -- General thank you very much great pleasure.
