My question is, why are they even debating severability? If I understand correctly, Congress often/usually includes severability clauses in legislation, but elected not to in this case. Doesn't that mean that if any provision is struck down, the law should be struck down? Any thoughts on that from those who have studied more than I have?

This law needs to be overturned for many reasons. It was fraudulently sold to start with and has clearly unconstitutional elements at the heart of it. Congress should start over and this time actually know what they are passing. A bad law that is not in comformity with Federal powers [INVALID] not to mention the untold number of regulations that result [INVALID] is simply not something that should be salvaged.
