  •  Great question re: poll tax. (0+ / 0-)

    Tell ya what, I'm a bit of a legal realist, and I think this may be an occasion on which I bite the bullet and resort to raw judicial power: even if the two couldn't be crisply distinguished conceptually, courts will find the mandate tax a legitimate exercise of the power to tax but would find unconstitutional a poll tax.
