Six of one, a half dozen of the other. They have stretched the "Commerce Clause" clause to a point where even a pseudo-conservative like Justice Roberts couldn't make it fit. So, in the spirit of judicial activism, he invents a new issue: the right of Congress to impose taxes. But wait a minute! Taxes are imposed on transactions, such as income, sales, ownership of property, etc. It's based on give and take. Now are we to accept that Congress has the right to tax us just because it can? If it were a tax on breathing it would have more validity, but Justice Roberts validated a tax on doing nothing. I hope my fellow Americans are buying this.
