"Surely ObamaCare is the modern Pandora's box. Did you realize it actually carries provisions that will more energetically tax, track and regulate your ability to buy gold coins worth $600 or more? What does that have to do with health care -- unless we're talking about the health of the IRS?" (12/19/10)

Judge should have struck down entire law

"This editorial about a federal judge striking down Obamacare's individual insurance-purchase mandate rightly noted that the law lacks a severability clause. Because of that, the judge should have struck down the entire health care law rather than just severing the unconstitutional part of it. To justify preserving the rest of the law, the judge cited a 2010 Supreme Court ruling that invalidated part of a law -- but kept the rest of it in force." (12/16/10)

"Thanks to the wisdom of a federal judge in Virginia, we are well on our way to putting an end to President Barack Obama’s unconstitutional health care reform package that was shoved down our throats earlier this year. Judge Henry E. Hudson, a conservative jurist who was appointed to the federal court by President George W. Bush, ruled that the individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act was unconstitutional."

Necessary and proper

The American Prospect
by Adam Serwer  

"The conservative argument against the individual mandate, a tax levied on people who avoid buying health insurance, is as powerful as it is simplistic: If the federal government can force you to buy health insurance, then it can make you do anything. It's a critique liberals need to answer more forcefully." [editor's note: Posted FYI; this is the "progressive" argument we'll be facing for a while on this issue, ignoring constitutional limits in favor of the "urgency" of this boondoggle - SAT] (12/17/10)
