The question, “is it Constitutional” should be changed to, “is it right or wrong.”
Trying to decide what a bunch of dead dudes “intended” 223 years ago, is irrelevant in today’s society.
Laws change as society changes. (Remember, slavery wasn’t abolished until the 5th presidency after the constitution was signed.)
If you examine the evidence for something and decide it’s right or wrong, say so; and I will respect you. Don’t stretch to find evidence that it’s against what a pile of bones might have thought in the 1700’s.
Two weeks ago, I used to agree with our attorney general's current opinion to an extent. I didn’t think it was fair to require Americans to buy health insurance and fine them if they don’t.

Conservatives are all about "conserving" the constitution. They are not willing to conform to how things change.
It would really help our economy if the 300,000 people who are not insured had to pay for insurance. Not everyone is going to get free healthcare, just cheaper healthcare. What they need to do is create a market between already existing insurance companies & credit them for lowing costs, especially to those who have preexisting conditions. that's where i think the government should come in. All they need to do is credit the insurance companies for lowering their costs & premiums. Also, if everybody was forced to buy insurance, this would create a SERIOUS market for the insurance companies. They would be in serious business & would have to lower costs in order to get customers.

You must not have read the part about..... Trying to decide what a bunch of dead dudes “intended” 223 years ago, is irrelevant in today’s society.
So you think we should just forget about the documents that have helped our nation be one of the greatest nations in the world~because you think some 'dudes' written laws for this nation are irrelevant? Are ALL the laws in the Constitution irrelevant? Or just the ones that don't meet your personal agenda?
