Three Reasons the Health Care Bills are Unconstitutional

Individual Mandate: “Congress must be able to point to at least one of its powers listed in the Constitution as the basis of any legislation it passes. None of those powers justifies the individual insurance mandate.”

Cash for Cloture: “This selective spending targeted at certain states runs afoul of the general welfare clause.”

Health Insurance Exchange: “The Constitution forbids the federal government from commandeering any branch of state government to administer a federal program.”
