The Constitution? Just Parchment.

The latest gem by David Michael Green, inspired by the recent Supreme Court ruling on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, has arrived. Here is an excerpt:
"Our current system of jurisprudence – which is often really our current system of legislation – is wrong on all sorts of levels. It was, to begin with, a bad idea for these justices to be deciding health care policy in America. And it was an even worse idea for them to be doing so on the basis of attempting (or pretending to be attempting) to decipher the Founders’ thoughts about the provision of health care to the public, more than a century before governments anywhere ever contemplated providing such services, and two centuries before it became the norm in developed countries."
Enjoy and learn.

And, if you would, please go and peruse my thoughts on the US Constitution, which I wrote about in 2008.
