I don’t see why not. The government creates crime and then regulates it.

The Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 did exactly that. In the next school year all kids will be made to buy a fresh fruit or veggie or pay a higher price for their meal (from what I have read).

This is an individual mandate. It passed easily in the House and no one in the Senate voted against it. As your Republican Congress critters about this.

But didn’t Justice Kennedy say something later on that the industry of health insurance already exists, so therefore Congress isn’t creating commerce, or something to that affect?

You can regulate it; but you can’t control it. In other words, you can’t regulate for your own ends. You can regulate it, but you can’t control it. If you do try to control it; it will seek it’s own level and someone else will control it which is what Obama wants. State or select bunch of people to control.

they think we are stupid and don’[t understand what they are doing. One thing for sure is Obama is going out of office. Either by voting him out or his criminal behavior.

I do not find any clause in the constitution empowering the legislature to mandate or create commerce. Article 1, Section 8 provides for the power to raise armies (and a navy), but not to compel defense contractors to provision them.
