Not sure you read the ruling. 1, it said that the tax portion of it is legal under Article 1 but that this tax can be repealed anytime. (Roberts essentially said withold funding if you dislike the bill and that is what the GOP is trying to do).
2, they struck down the mandatory expansion of Medicaid portion of the bill. Wihtout this mechanism to expand reach, Obamacare won't really work anyway. So no, SCOTUS didn't simply rule in favor of Obama's plan although you O-Bots think they did.
