Here is a great summary of the possible issues which the court will weigh as presented by constitutional experts.
- What the opponents are really claiming is that it is unconstitutional to make Americans pay taxes.
- The Supreme Court has never upheld a “tax” penalizing private citizens who refuse to enter into a contract with a private company
- Any state that does not want to expand Medicaid can simply drop the program entirely.
- If Congress can legislate this broadly, then there is no limit to federal power in every aspect of life.
