Health Reform Legal Because of ‘Lie,’ Columnist Argues
Syndicated columnist Mark Steyn argues, "There's nothing constitutionally seemly about a court decision that says [the health reform] law is only legal because the people's representatives flat out lied to the people when they passed it." He notes that throughout the health reform debates, "Democrats explicitly denied it was a massive tax hike," calling it instead a mandate. However, the Supreme Court "found the individual mandate constitutional by declining to recognize it as a mandate at all."
