Scalia & Oral Argument On Obamacare

So will the Supreme Court uphold or strike down Obamacare in whole or in part? It's impossible to project, and I won't try. I will simply note that if they do uphold it, they will be expanding the power of the federal government to the point that it would have the power to force each and every person who participated in the Boston Tea Party to buy East India Trading Company tea. Somehow, I don't think that was within the intent of our Founders when they drafted our Constitution. Our nation will be changed fundamentally.

But all of that said, the Supreme Court arguments were wholly worthwhile if for nothing else than listening to Justice Scalia questioning the Obama administration advocate on why the Obamacare mandate is outside the Constitution and prior Supreme Court precedent.  Do enjoy this.
