If They’re Surprised, They Haven’t Been Listening

The Left’s reaction to questions posed by the justices during oral argument over Obamacare have made a lot of folks — including me — wonder why they’re so surprised. Limited-government conservatives have been making some of the same points for more than two years. That’s what the town halls were all about as Obamacare was debated. So why is the Left acting ¬†as if they’ve never heard these concerns and issues? Here’s one take from The Weekly Standard’s blog. Even if the law ultimately is upheld, I am thankful that the Left finally understands that serious intellectuals realize there is a limit to federal power and that Obamacare turns the Constitution on its head by forcing every American to buy a government-approved product or face a government penalty. That coercion is unprecedented and should be struck down.
