If the other 49 states want compulsory healthcare insurance, there is no reason why they cannot have it if permitted under their constitutions. However, there is no reason for the federal government to impose ObamaCare on the 26 states contesting its constitutionality.

Without getting into the technical merits of the constitutionality of ObamaCare, clever attorneys can cogently argue both sides of the issue. However, the case for ObamaCare requires an Orwellian expansion of the Commerce Clause which few Americans can understand.

The case against ObamaCare is clearly stated within the four corners of the Constitution, and any educated American can understand its logic. Furthermore, a majority of Americans oppose ObamaCare. If a majority of the people in the 23 states that are not contesting the constitutionality of ObamaCare want compulsory healthcare, they can adopt it in their states like Massachusetts adopted RomneyCare. They do not need to impose it on the 26 states that do not want it.

Consequently, there is no compelling reason for the Supreme Court to expand the powers of the federal government, unless the justices believe the politicians and bureaucrats in Washington know what is best for the rest of America’s 325 million citizens. If that is the case, our liberty is in great danger.
