My husband and I were discussing this just yesterday. They're all sworn in to office under oath, an oath to uphold the Constitution. If SCOTUS finds Obamacare unconstitutional, why are they not penalized, in any way, for violating the Constitution?

Yikes! Why are they not penalized? Because the Constitution has no such provision for penalizing those who voted for legislation later ruled to be Unconstitutional.
That type of thinking is better suited to banana republics - where differences of political opinion are subject to criminal liability.
Our Constitution has no such provision, and we are a stronger Republic for it.
Mass arrests of political opponents is not the American way.
