The mandate

I have no qualifications whatsoever to judge the constitutionality of Obamacare, but it is supremely ironic (perhaps even contradictory?!) that exercising federal police power to fund universal socialized health insurance to people over 65 is perfectly fine, while preserving and in fact facilitating a private market approach to health care is quite possibly verboten. Not to mention that Congressman Ryan's Medicare "reform" plan is to replace it with an underfunded version of Obamacare for old folks. If that should come to pass under President Romney, I wonder whether the questioning from Justice Scalia will be equally hostile...
