The government could require us to dine OUT rather than at home as dining in has a negative effect on commerce.
By destroying competition, and using fixed pricing Obama”care” violates anti-trust laws.
Here is the problem as I see it.
If he didn’t grow wheat, for his family or for commerce, would he be penalized for not growing it?
That’s the problem with Obamacare. If I do not want healthcare or need healthcare, why shuld I be penalized for it.
Now I would take it a step further and reall screw up the SCOTUS. If I do not have kids I nschool, why should I pay property taxes?
I is dead (Hopeful)
The yoke of Wickard needs to be thrown from our shoulders.
In my dreams, the Supremes not only knock down ObamaCare but reverse Filburn as well.
With respect to the words general welfare, I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.

Alcoholism, drug addiction and STDs all contribute to rising health care costs. The Bible promotes sobriety, temperance, and abstinence from extra-marital sex. Ergo, Fedzilla should mandate that every citizen purchase a Bible.
By 1942 most of the justices on the Supreme Court were FDR’s nominees.
insurance is only sold within each state, so the regulation of interstate commerce would not apply.
Gee, this could be an argument against the legalization of medical marijuana, or the home cultivation of such in any stae. Some of the MJ could find it's way to truck drivers, and affect the reliability of their driving, which would in turn affect interstate commerce. Okaaaaayyy.
/S, of course
I gotta ask..
since I can’t buy health insurance from another state.. how can they claim they can regulate health insurance under “interstate commerce”?
