Why ObamaCare is Losing in the Courts
The United States Constitution states that the federal government does not have the right to pass laws that are said to be in the public interest without regard to interstate commerce or another federal legislative authority. Mandating that everyone purchase government-sanctioned healthcare is similar to the government mandating that everyone buy a certain product, such as broccoli, which it would never do. But because ObamaCare supporters believe healthcare to be more important than other issues, the plan is being pushed, regardless of constitutionality.
The U.S. also has a distinct division between federal and state government, which protects the freedoms of the individual, as well as illuminates which branch of government is responsible for policies, giving voters the ability to vote accordingly. The ObamaCare plan does not comply with this division, as it essentially bypasses interstate commerce interest.
This plan would also have to put a lot of trust in Congress to make a responsible decision that is in the best interest of only what is absolutely essential to the American public. For ObamaCare to succeed, the Supreme Court will have to overlook the fact that it is not constitutional, as well as the division between state and federal government, which it is not likely to do.
