Since my grasp of U.S. constitutional law is limited, to say the least, I will refrain from offering any particular opinion on the legal reasoning. Outside of that, I mostly agree with Tyler Cowen’s post on the subject. In particular, I think one has to recognize the truth in the quote below, unfortunate as it may be.
I think that plenty of what our government does is unconstitutional; just remember back to when an amendment was considered necessary for “The War against Alcohol”. But I’ve also long considered health care policy a matter to be settled by the legislature not the courts. Those are the modern rules of the game, for better or worse, and all along I have thought that trying to live outside those rules was a fool’s errand of sorts.
