The Republicans, of course, are dancing in the streets.
But, correct me if I'm wrong. Doesn't this mean that the Republicans' pet project (privatizing Social Security) would also be unconstitutional. If you can't force people to buy health care, why should you be able to force them to buy social security?
I'm putting Kissweb's comment into the post:
Bingo. That's the endgame. First you get privatization, and then libertarians start agitating: "It's wrong (and unconstitutional) to force people to save for their retirement." So everything becomes a voluntary 401 K.They've never liked Social Security from the start. Now, probably, they've found a way to get rid of it altogether.
The fault line there is between the purist libertarians -- no compulsion -- and the financial people who benefit from being given management of the forced savings.
