Justice Kennedy's Million Dollar Question | Hoover Institution

Wickard v. Filburn, Dred Scott, Kelo, Roe vs. Wade and a bunch of others were terrible SCOTUS decisions. Some have resulted in putting the nation on a path of eroding personal liberty. One must consider that in the founding of the United States, an experiment in personal liberty, the Commerce Clause was not designed as a blank check for Congress to do absolutely anything that they wanted. Wickard v. Filburn largely set us on a path that whatever you do, you have an impact on interstate commerce and therefore subject to regulation. With Obamacare, the fact that you exist is enough for Congress to intervene in any way that it deems necessary. Your mere existence allows congress to tell you what to buy and what can be offered to you. The central government has not only no right to do these things, they are terrible at delivering these goods and services.
