Bill Clinton's Unfunded Mandates Reform Act Of 1995 Could Pose Significant Problems For ObamaCare
"Under this act, any new legislation that proposes a mandate on state and local governments estimated to cost more than $50 million dollars must have a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimate and provide the funding to pay for the mandates.
How many states are going to have to deal with unfunded mandates that far exceed $50 million dollars and into the tens of billions of dollars each year and pertain to a host of services that will have to be funded by the federal gov't under ObamaCare?
If the unfunded mandates are funded, that would skyrocket the actual cost of ObamaCare."
The chances of challenging Obamacare look even better now.
And there is still the unconstitutionality of forcing someone to purchase an insurance policy. The Commerce Clause cannot be used to force anyone to engage in Commerce. Even the CBO stated that this is an unprecedented reach of legislative power.
