Obamacare: ‘Supreme Court to Decide of the U.S. Constitution Is a Dead Letter’
Bob Marshall’s article on the Obamacare oral argument entitled “Supreme Court to Decide if the U.S. Constitution Is a Dead Letter,” was published today (Tuesday, March 27) on American Thinker, a daily Internet publication devoted to the thoughtful exploration of issues of importance to Americans.
Delegate Marshall’s article addresses the question about ObamaCare on which the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments today: “Whether Congress had the power under Article I of the Constitution to enact the minimum coverage provision.” Delegate Marshall filed a total of three amicus curiae briefs in federal courts over the last year, including an amicus curiae brief to the Supreme Court in the case before it today.
”Supreme Court to Decide if the U.S. Constitution Is a Dead Letter”
By Bob Marshall
By tomorrow, the U.S. Supreme Court will have spent six hours hearing oral argument over a three-day period about the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as ObamaCare. After the argument on Tuesday, the Court will address the question: “Whether Congress had the power under Article I of the Constitution to enact the minimum coverage provision.” That sterile statement of the issue on which the Court granted certiorari vastly understates the significance of this case. The truth is that this case will determine whether there are any meaningful limitations on Congress’ power to mandate an individual’s life choices.
