    Whether a law actually works, at least not without some long-term data to base that opinion upon.  The mandate doesn't have to actually promote the general welfare.  I think the standard merely should be that a rational person could think it does.

    Congress would not work if it were not give sufficient power that there is a risk of that power being abused.  The remedy is to elect a better Congress, not to neuter it.
