In Judge Roger Vinson’s January 31 judgement that Obamacare is unconstitutional, he quoted the following comment from a previous Supreme Court:
‘‘Generally speaking, when confronting a constitutional flaw in a statute, [courts] try to limit the solution to the problem,’’ [page 64]
Imagine that: Try to limit the solution to the problem.
If only we had a Congress that tried to limit its solutions to the actual, you know, problems. If only Congress, having observed 15% of Americans have no insurance, had tried to limit their solution to that problem - instead of using the crisis to attempt a takeover of 100% of American insurance.
For that matter - if only we had Federal, State, and local governments that limit their solutions to the problems.
Sadly we do not have these things.
