John Boehners Lawsuit

Legal folks - has anyone thought that the reasoning for Bohners lawsuit is to get it up to the SCOTUS so that they can get rid of the ACA that way?  all he has to do it is steer it in the general direction and the SCOTUS can take it up (like citizens united) and rule it unconstitutional that way.  I imagine that Roberts would love to please the people that are no doubt  giving him hell for upholding it to begin with.  I am sure that they can find standing (seemingly the tough part) in some court and then it can make it's way to them.

This is still half thought out.. but I figured I toss the topic out for input.

Corporate personhood seems to have its roots in what appears to be a blatant bastardization of the 14th Amendment...
