The Mandate Must GO

Quote of the Day:

or as Robert Tracinski put it in TIA Daily:

The vicious irony of the Commerce Clause is that it is invoked, not to "regulate commerce" but to wipe it out, to replace it with its antithesis, coercion.

That is particularly true of the individual mandate, which uses "commerce" as a rationalization to require an action that is pure coercion, an act that would not happen at all if it were not forced. This is not "commerce" any more than getting mugged on a street corner is "commerce."
