Some Absurdities of the Obamacare Decision

Here's a couple, and I suspect this post will grow:

First, as far as I can tell, while this said Congress was limited under the Commerce Act, you can get the same effect through power of taxation.  In other words, they can't make you buy broccoli, but they can tax you for not buying broccoli.

Second, while the Left is crowing about Obamacare surviving, the mandate survives as a tax.  As a tax, since it applies to everyone equally, and is most likely to hit low-paid workers since they are least likely to have insurance. That means the Democratic Congress passed, and Obama signed, a massive new tax on those least able to pay.
