4. Yep

If you read the first line, it does appear that the mandate is unconstitional.

CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS concluded in Part III–A that the individual mandate is not a valid exercise of Congress’s power under the Commerce Clause and the Necessary and Proper Clause. Pp. 16

It isn't until page 4 of the opinion that it is ruled constitutional under the taxing authority. Prior to that, it is ruled unconstitutional under both the Commerce Clause and the Necessary and Proper Clause.

They just didn't take time to read the entire opinion.
