Responses to Questions the Justices Asked about Obamacare

Memo to Justice Kennedy who asked: "Can you create commerce in order to regulate it?"

  • Interstate commerce exists when uninsured New Hampshire residents, living the State's motto "Live Free or Die," go to emergency rooms in Massachusetts hospitals.

Memo to Justice Scalia: who asked why people should have to pay for maternal care or pediatric care if they did not intend to use it?

  • Everyone in the courtroom received pediatric care; everyone in the courtroom's mother received maternal care. 
  • Our generation  has not been very good at ensuring inter-generational equity. We need to pay forward for the health care of the next generation.

Case closed!
