Just Plain Wrong

In my last post, on June 1, I predicted that the ironically-named Affordable Care Act would be struck down as unconstitutional.  I was just plain wrong. I was correct that the law violated the commerce clause, which was the primary authority on which the government based its argument.  I also opined that at least one liberal justice would concur in the “violates the commerce clause” point, but would provide that the [more . . . ]
