In the following video, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia knocks down the federal government's alleged Commerce Clause case precedents for the ObamaCare individual mandate (and makes the point of my previous post). Scalia also gives the government solicitor a lesson on enumerated powers and the Tenth Amendment. This is music to my ears.
Passing thought: In the above video, the government solicitor said something about how the federal government needs to regulate interstate commerce in the healthcare market. Because health insurance is not even allowed to be sold across state lines in this country (it's all licensed at the state level), how can ObamaCare be regulating insurance between the states ? Remember what the Commerce Clause says, "[Congress shall have Power] To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian tribes". How can the federal government regulate interstate health insurance commerce, when it doesn't even exist ?
