Maybe you’ve missed the idea that this was a Court decision, not a vote by the people!
Do you NOT understand that this is a Republic, NOT a Democracy! We elect those that are suppose to uphold both the law and the Constitution. When our Representatives and the courts ignore the Constitution, what is left to do?
Now if you think that the Supreme Court is the “law of the land” regardless of what the people think, then yes you are right.
But if you think that our Republic can be compromised by government - Congress, Executive, or the Courts, and you think you can do nothing about it - you are wrong!
Counting the votes usually is a Democracy action. In the case of Obamacare, democracy had no play. After all, if they actually took a vote, it would have been defeated by the US at large. Unfortunately, we had a Democratic Congress that had no problems using unseemly methods to pass this law regardless of the popular vote - so just who wins in this type of Democracy?
They used both bribes (just our Congress at work) and false methods to get this bill passed. Maybe you should consider searching the internet about just how this bill passed before worrying about Democracy!

Go to a system like the Swiss have, under which issues of importance become the subject of national referendums — everyone gets to vote on them, and the majority wins.
“Mob rule”, some will say. My reply is, how much worse is that from what we’re getting now? The tyranny of the majority, vis-a-vis the tyranny of the oligarchy?
Or, to paraphrase William F. Buckley, I would rather be governed by the votes of 200,000,000 Americans, than by the votes of 535 corrupt members of Congress!
