  •  Where we differ (and what I've been saying here (0+ / 0-)

    for two years now) is that I don't think that regulation of inactivity is settled law.  I think that, in this Supreme Court, it's a close case and I would not be surprised to see your side win out, but I don't think that it would require overturning any decisions for PPACA's mandate to be found unconstitutional.

    (I'm not a Paulista, in relevant respect, because I'm not rooting for it to be unconstitutional.  I'm offering a dispassionate analysis, my preferences aside.)

    Now, what is the "express PROHIBITION of government action that impinges on the liberty interests of individuals" that would prevent the government, under your theory, from mandating that people floss every day.  If it's "express," it should be easy to find -- and not too vague.

    In my avatar, the blue bars show how many want Reps who COMPROMISE; the aqua bars show who wants Reps who STAND FAST no matter what. (Left=Overall; Center=Democrats; Right=Republicans.) And there's the problem!
