Is The Health Insurance Individual Mandate Constitutional?
I don't think so, and neither does Jacob Sullum of Reason Magazine, who pretty much states the case better than I could. Unfortunately, at this point the meaning of the phrase "interstate commerce" has been so warped by decades of successive court rulings expanding Federal power that I don't expect the Supreme Court to agree. A fellow can dream, though.
