Is ObamaCare UnConstitutional?

Well, on its face the government power grab known as ObamaCare, certainly should be. Pat at And So It Goes In Shreveport:

Can Obama FORCE you to buy health insurance through an individual mandate? This Washington Post article says no.

It's a very interesting thought, and one that I've been pondering since Smitty brought it up in the comments on a previous post of mine on ObamaCare.

Rivkin and Casey run through several court precedents and find that none would pass muster to allow such a mandate: "The federal government does not have the power to regulate Americans simply because they are there." Many of the uninsured, as we know, are young, feel invincible, and choose not to purchase health care which is entirely their right.

Obama, a Consitutional scholar, either skipped class the day basic human rights were discussed, or he is so egotistical that he believes that he knows better than our Founding Fathers. Probably both.

ObamaCare Unconstitutional?. Of course it is, unconstitutional as Obama himself.
