One Response to “Randy Barnett On The Constitutionality Of The Individual Mandate”

  1. Daniel Conti says:

    I admit to being biased because I am a huge fan of Randy Barnett. Still, this was a detailed,very persuasive lecture. It strikes me that despite an analysis like this, the media and “constitutional experts” continue to portray constitutional arguments against the individual mandate as frivolous, without merit, and unlikely to succeed. I know we live in a world of sound bytes, so it’s tough to listen to an hour and a half lecture, no matter how good it is. Maybe someone can edit it down to a nice youtube sized excerpt.
