One of the founding principles of American governance is that the sovereign States created a federal government with limited and enumerated powers. The U.S. Constitution defines those limits. Any action taken by the federal government in excess of these enumerated powers is a violation of the liberty of the states and their citizens.
The individual mandate, in the Presidents health care law, compelling all citizens to purchase a product from a private company is an unconstitutional violation of those limited and enumerated powers. The framers intended that Congress only be able to use the commerce clause to regulate interstate economic activity, or activities that substantially affect interstate commerce. However, Congress may not use the clause to force otherwise inactive citizens to enter a marketplace and purchase a product against their will.
As of February 2012, 72 percent of registered voters believe Obamacares individual mandate is unconstitutional, and 50 percent want the Supreme Court to overturn the entire statute.
