I didn’t think of the “individual mandate” as a big deal when the health care reform law passed. After all, I have coverage at work. But when this ruling came down I realized that if it had been upheld based on the commerce argument vs. the tax argument, that would have had far reaching implications for the power of government to compel citizens to buy/do/have coverage for many more things. That’s a scary prospect.
Government should help the vulnerable to not be destitute and starving. All else is perhaps elective. If relevant for you, check out my new site about tonsi stones.
