Obamacare is Unconstitutional, SCOTUS was wrong and its not the first time.
Just what it says on the tin. The SCOTUS was wrong and Obamacare only passed because the vanity of one, the others that agreed are nothing but traitors.

That aside, here is an intresting quick list as to why it doesn't pass the Constitutional muster.

"Top Ten Reasons ObamaCare is Unconstitutional"

1) Exceeds the Scope of the Commerce Clause – The purpose of Congress’s power to regulate commerce among the states was to end interstate protectionist measures and establish a national free trade pact. The Constitution does not give Congress the power to create commerce in order to regulate it.

2) Threatens the Notion of Limited Government – The individual mandate would be a grant of limitless legislative and regulatory power. This violates the doctrine of enumerated powers in which Congress is given few and specific legislative powers.

3) Imperils Religious Liberty – ObamaCare forces religious institutions to provide services that violate their faith.

4) Rewrites Contract Law – The individual mandate renders the purchase of health insurance to be compulsory. For centuries, it has been understood that a contract is valid only if all parties voluntarily and mutually assent to its terms

5) Charges a Financial Penalty to Regulate Behavior – ObamaCare imposes a financial penalty on those that fail to purchase health insurance. The Constitution does not grant Congress an independent power to tax for the general welfare and may not use taxation as a means to regulate activity, unless that regulation is authorized by the Constitution.

You could easily add a couple more not mentioned.. such as the 9th amendment of the US Constitution... as well as the 10th amendment of the US Constitution.

Shameless? Yes. I just happen to feel strongly that we must start standing up.

"10 Overturned Supreme Court Cases" - Just say'n

There are two ways it can happen:

1 States can amend the Constitution itself. This requires approval by three-quarters of the state legislatures -- no easy feat. However, it has happened several times.

2 The Supreme Court can overrule itself. This happens when a different case involving the same constitutional issues as an earlier case is reviewed by the court and seen in a new light, typically because of changing social and political situations. The longer the amount of time between the cases, the more likely this is to occur (partly due to stare decisis).
