Supreme Court Upholds Individual Mandate

I am disappointed with today’s Supreme Court decision because the Court has cleared the way for what looks like a very broad use of the tax power.  But we can still be very thankful that the court has defended the contours of the Commerce Clause. This litigation has spurred a national debate about health care that showed the Democrats’ predictions were wrong: The more Americans have learned about this health care law, the less they like it. Today’s case has laid the groundwork for a committed movement to repeal PPACA and search for an alternative that respects both individual rights and the Constitution.
