Reason #162: Ambiguity

As I first mentioned back in December, the Supreme Court is currently in the midst of three days of arguments regarding the constitutionality of Obamacare's mandate that all US citizens be enrolled in some form of health coverage.

Some health care reform is better than zero health care reform, so I'm not overly inclined to complain that the law exists as-is; especially because the list of exemptions is such that almost no one would actually be hurt financially by it at when all is said and done.

But frankly, in my opinion? The individual mandate is indeed unconstitutional; it was when the Rebpulicans wanted to do it in the 90's and it is now. You know what isn't? Single-payer.

Just saying.
