It’s the economy, stupid

Here are some things that, strangely, nobody asked about at yesterday’s presser, probably because we ran out of time: the deficit, Solyndra, et.al., squandering federal dollars, Fast and Furious, the “shameful” and “outrageous” bonuses being paid to bankrupt Big Green Energy company executives.

    Constitutional law professor Elizabeth Price Foley, who is the executive director of the Institute’s Florida Chapter and who co-authored IJ’s brief, said, “The individual mandate violates a cardinal rule of contract law—to be enforceable, all agreements must be voluntary. The Framers understood this, and would never have given the federal government the power to force individuals into lifelong contracts of insurance. The Court should not allow the government to exercise this unprecedented and dangerous power.”

    As IJ’s brief shows, the principle of mutual assent, under which both parties must consent for a contract to be valid, is a fundamental principle of contract law that was well understood during the Founding era and is still a cornerstone of contract law today. Indeed, contracts entered under duress have long been held to be invalid. Yet the mandate forces individuals to enter into contracts of insurance that would never be valid under this longstanding principle. (For a copy of IJ’s brief, visit: http://www.ij.org/PPACAbrief.)

    I never claimed to be a Republican – just an FYI for you
