Another challenge to Obamacare

The U.S. Supreme Court kept alive a challenge to  a portion ofObamacare on First Amendment grounds. 


  1. What about challenging "Obamacare" on 9th and 10th Amendment grounds? The most blatant constitutional violation of this overreaching federal mandate. America's pledge of allegiance would more appropriately be worded " ... and to the republic[s] for which it stands ...". According to the anti-federalist "Brutus", responsive republican governance is workable only in smaller communities. Whereas a country as large as the United States, republicanism inherently fails at properly managing people's diverse domestic needs. Regulating folks' private healthcare plays right into central government's dysfunctional and wasteful social progressiveness.

    1. PS: The Robert's court ruled "Obamacare" constitutional only if it was based on a non-punitive tax. Let's see, "Obamacare" is unconstitutional via the commerce clause. But It's perfectly OK if implemented under congress' taxing power? "Brutus" was accurate when he wrote " ...the authority to lay and collect taxes ... connects with it almost all other powers .... it is the great means of protection, security, and defence [sic], in a good government, and the great engine of oppression and tyranny in a bad one.". Roberts' "Obamacare" decision moved the country into the latter realm.
