Obamacare is UnConstitutional

"More Legal Experts Say ObamaCare Is Unconstitutional" is the title of this deeply linked article.

Two things, first openmarket is associated with my husband's think tank, Competitive Enterprise Institute.

Second and more importantly, when you go to the site you will find an article where each and every claim made is linked to supporting evidence. This kind of meticulous "proofing" of each and every claim is something I appreciate in conservative and libertarian writing. And while some links lead to other articles (that are equally well "proofed") many others link to pieces from the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal and the Washington Examiner.

Here is a sample below but read the whole thing.
More legal experts are questioning the constitutionality of ObamaCare. In today’s Washington Post, two former Justice Department lawyers, David Rivkin and Lee Casey, argue that a central provision of Obama’s health-care plan – the “individual mandate” — is unconstitutional, and beyond Congress’s powers under the Constitution, such as its powers to tax and regulate interstate commerce.

Earlier, other legal experts and the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights criticized major provisions of ObamaCare, such as its affirmative-action and racial preferences, and its intrusive regulation of medicine, as being unconstitutional.

The President yesterday repeated his false claim that ObamaCare will not cover illegal aliens. But it effectively will cover illegal aliens, if they want coverage, as many commentators have explained, including think-tanks like the Heritage Foundation, legal experts, publications like National Review, and syndicated columnists. (Most other countries do not provide national health insurance for illegal immigrants.)

Obama’s credibility is further undermined by his long line of broken promises, such as his pledge to enact a “net spending cut,” which he broke through budgets that will explode the national debt through $9.3 trillion in massively increased deficit spending.
