    Re: Health care law held constitutional in latest appeals court ruling

    Apparently conservatives don't understand the democratic process when it involves them not getting their way. Boo-hoo. From what I heard, on conservative talk radio, this ruling came down from a conservative judge.

    I wish health insurance were actually interstate commerce... i'd love to have the option to buy insurance from other states.

    I doubt that you would. The end result would be a race to the bottom, with each state trying to attract insurance companies by eliminating consumer protections. You'd end up with a situation where all the insurance companies were located in [low ball state] because [low ball state] has bad faith laws so weak as to be meaningless.

    Or you could end up with the consumer being able to tailor their purchase to their individual need and means...kind of like buying a TV.

    Health care isn't...but health insurance is.

    Try not to confuse the two, eh?

    When the federal government can control any activity or non-activity that is even remotely connected to interstate commerce, it is virtually unlimited in its scope of powers.

    So much for a federal government with limited, enumerated powers.

    You can already tailor your insurance to your individual needs and means, but you still have all the protections provided by your state's insurance regulations.

    Of course most people are stuck with whatever their employer provides. The health care reform law will give most people five times the choice they have now, but somehow that's a bad thing when Obama is responsible for it.

    This is a victory for those that support the law. The multiple previous suits that held it unconstitutional were a victory for those that don't support the law. All of these battles are nothing but minor skirmishes in the larger context of the "war". None of these significantly really matter. The battle that will matter is the final one that both sides are inevitably moving towards in the SCOTUS.
