Justice Kennedy sums up the problem with Obama-care in this one statement
Justice Kennedy, known to be the swing vote on any Supreme Court rulings, had this refreshingly ominous statement regarding Obama-care....
From FoxNews -- And here the government is saying that the Federal Government has a duty to tell the individual citizen that it must act, and that is different from what we have in previous cases and that changes the relationship of the Federal Government to the individual in the very fundamental way.
Exactly! If the government can force you to buy health-care insurance for your own good, then it can force you to buy brussel sprouts for your own good; a cell phone for your own safety; or cable TV so you can get emergency alerts.
No amount of "public good" outweighs the awfulness of government being able to compel, under penalty of law, individuals to engage in commerce. The federal government cannot create by force, interstate commerce, just so they can regulate it. Let's hope this marks the beginning of the end of Obama-care.
