Post-SCOTUS thoughts: Man on the Street Edition.

Since we are now all constitutional scholars, I thought I would add my two cents.

Am I disappointed in the outcome?  Yes.

Is this a totally unprecedented expansion of Congress’ taxing power?

Reviewing last year’s tax return,

I must grudgingly admit, he might have a point.  Would “#54: Broccoli” really be all that different from all the other stuff?

HOWEVER:

It turns out, the commerce and spending clause have limits.  Really? That’s new. (At least, in the last 60 years…)

Did he really tell us that we  should elect a different president?

“It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.”

Yes, I believe he did.

Did Ginsburg (Yes Ginsburg) all but say that the HHS contraception mandate would not pass constitutional muster?

A mandate to purchase a particular product would be unconstitutional if, for example, the edict impermissibly abridged the freedom of speech, inter­fered with the free exercise of religion, or infringed on a liberty interest protected by the Due Process Clause.

It sure sounds like it.  I’m not pleased, but this is definitely NOT a slam dunk win for the progressive agenda.
