It’s the question pundits have been asking themselves all weekend: was the Supreme Court right to call Obamacare a constitutional law?
After all, the bill was sold to the average American not as a tax, but as a mandate. In fact, White House legal officials even tried to defend the law as a mandate allowed under the commerce clause in front of the court – though it was clear they would take none of that. What’s more, many legal scholars said the mandate never should have been upheld – which made Thursday’s ruling a surprise for Republicans (in a good way, actually).
While SCOTUS isn’t necessarily democratic (well, only 9 people get to vote), we at DYNAMO believe in the wisdom of the voters.
So, answer the poll below and let the world know what you think about the Supreme Court’s Obamacare decision…
