•If the government can make people buy health insurance, what's to stop them from making everyone eat broccoli? (Note: this argument was really raised in the Obamacare litigation.)

Steve, you need to correct this. THe argument was about whether the federal government can order people to BUY broccoli. THat is what the NYT article to which you linked stated, but you didn't see it because you believe everything a Democrat says (and seem to reject everything said by a Republican).

THis is another example of the knee jerk tendency to adopt the talking points of the Democratic party, without a clue about the truth.

Does the Commerce Clause empower the feds to order you to BUY broccoli? I don't see that as a frivolous question given that there were five votes to say "no."
