The Supreme Court did protect the Constitution. It sent the entire thing back to Congress. The House, and Senate, are going to pass resolutions to repeal Obamacare after the Fourth of July.

Dream on Blair. Even if teh house passes it (which they could have done at any time) it isn't going to get out of the Senate. Nor would Obama sign it. SO what is your point again?

The House vote is scheduled for July 11. Haven't heard anything about the Senate, but since it's controlled by Democrats, I doubt anything will happen. Besides, without 2/3 votes, Obama will of course simply veto the bills.

It has traditionally been liberals, not conservatives, who have looked to the courts to implement their policy preferences. Whether it was racial and sex preferences, abortion, gay marriage, capital punishment or the "rights" of illegal aliens, liberals have attempted to move the country left by judicial fiat.

Judges, after all, are highly educated elites. The political views of people with advanced degrees tend to be liberal. It's far easier to seduce a few robed lawyers to issue congenial rulings than it is to undertake the hard and lengthy work of persuading millions of voters to elect people who agree with you.
