Insurance Mandate Faces Tough Questions

I can draw a "bright line" for Justice Kennedy. Anyone who doesn't buy insurance winds up in the ER, which makes us all pay more (and gives them a free ride).--SS     

Insurance Mandate Faces Tough Questions: "With the fate of President Obama's health care law hanging in the balance at the Supreme Court on Tuesday, a lawyer for the administration faced a barrage of skeptical questions from four of the court's more conservative justices," the New York Times reports.

"The legal question for the justices was whether Congress had exceeded its constitutional authority in requiring most Americans to obtain insurance or pay a penalty. The practical question was whether Mr. Obama's signature domestic achievement would survive."

Wall Street Journal: "The most worrisome remarks for the plaintiffs--the side arguing against the Obama health law--came from Justice Kennedy, who wavered over the claim that when it came to health care, a bright line could be drawn between those engaged in commerce by buying insurance and whose wholly outside the market by declining to do so."
