Dianne FeinsteinDianne Emiel FeinsteinFive takeaways from Barrett's Supreme Court grilling Barrett declines to say if Trump can unilaterally delay election Barrett sidesteps Democratic questions amid high-stakes grilling MORE (Calif.), the top Democrat on the panel, kicked off the third day of Barrett's hearing pressing her on the health care case, and if the individual mandate, nixed by Congress in 2017, can be stuck down without tanking the entire law.Barrett did not say how she would rule in the case that will be before the Supreme Court on Nov. 10 but noted that judges generally try to save the underlying law when possible. When Barrett agreed that it was "true" that judges try to preserve the overall law when weighing if a provision can be removed, one of the key points of debate in the looming ObamaCare case, Graham added: "That's the law folks." Barrett's remarks appear to contrast the basic argument from the challengers, a group of more than a dozen Republican states, who say that because Republicans zeroed out the individual mandate, which required most Americans purchase health care, the entire Obama-era health care law is unconstitutional and should be struck down.
