Victor Davis Hanson in looking back at 2013 said that Obamacare might take its place alongside Sasquatch, crop circles and the Loch Ness monster as one of the great hoaxes of all time. If only Obamacare was not as pervasive, real and pernicious. Obamacare is real and America is beginning to experience what Politifact labeled as the Lie of the Year.
Before and during the 2012 elections, too many Americans believed the president when he said, if we liked our insurance and our doctor, we could keep them. Pre-existing conditions would be accepted, signing up would be a snap and after all was said and done, we would save $2,500 in annual premiums. Not even sure how that flew in the face of reports around the country that people almost immediately were having their premiums jacked up, by that much and more.

State inspection laws, health laws, and laws for regulating the internal commerce of a State, and those which respect turnpike roads, ferries, &c. are not within the power granted to Congress. (emphases added) Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.
Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States. Justice John Marshall, Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.
