Washington-When Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. takes his usual center seat on the Supreme Court bench on March 26, he will begin presiding over an extraordinary three days of arguments that will determine the fate of President Obama’s sweeping health care law. The decision in the case, expected by June, will have practical consequences for tens of millions of Americans without health insurance, and it may affect Mr. Obama’s re-election chances. (NYT)
Nowhere in the Constitution does it say you have a right to health care and it certainly does not say the government has the authority to make the citizens of the United States buy a product from a third-party. On that basis alone the bill should be ruled unconstitutional. Then you have endless unfunded mandates (burdens) being forced upon the states.
I’m not a constitutional attorney, but this seems like a no-brainer to me, then again this is Washington were talking about. STAY TUNED!!!
