Abstract

Two days before President Barack Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Randy Barnett wrote this op-ed (abridged here) for the Washington Post. Barnett would eventually find himself on the legal team that challenged the law in the Supreme Court. At this time, however, there were just less-refined arguments and the hope that some court would take those arguments seriously.
