    David Katz, M.D.: Is the Affordable Care Act Really Unconstitutional?

    The crux of the Constitutional debate seems to be whether or not the federal government can compel us to buy any commodity. What my common sense tells me is that in the case of healthcare, it is not the government, but the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune that compel the 'purchase.'

    There is a reason Dr. Katz is called "Doctor" and Judge Vinson is called "Judge."

    That is, quite possibly, the single most stupid rationalization for ObamaCare that I've ever heard or seen.
