Can Lawyers and the Courts Save Americans From Government-Run Health Care?
Jonathan Hoenig: Health reform has disintegrated into mob rule. This country is “anything goes” as long as you can get votes. Powers of government are supposed to be limited. By the fact they are requiring to you buy health insurance not because you are getting a car, this is a requirement to buy a product because you are alive. I can’t imagine in a country based on individual rights how that could be constitutional. I hope it gets challenged. Christian Dorsey: It doesn’t seem fair to me either. I think that is going to get struck down in the final bill when the house and senate reconcile. The larger issue is whether or nor not there should be legal challenges to the idea of requiring individuals to pay for health care. Anybody who thinks there is a valid legal challenge is being shameful, desperate and hypocritical. I can’t say that strongly enough. There’s every believe that congress has the ability to tax and spend to provide for the general welfare of which health care is one. Cert
