Notes from no one...

Prominent left-wing blogger/moron Josh Marshall, yesterday:
A year ago, no one took seriously the idea that a federal health care mandate was unconstitutional.

Me, a year ago:
It's a wildly unpopular bill, that has never been fully printed for people to read, that will force people to purchase specific services from specific [previously] private sector entities without any kind of constitutional justification

Me, a little less than a year ago:
there's no discussion amongst our representatives whatsoever about whether their proposals are constitutional. Which they are almost certainly not...Of course, there's a lot of legislation passed in Washington which wouldn't pass if our elected representatives actuall followed the Constitution. This is just one more piece...

Obviously, there were a lot of people who took the idea of an individual mandate being unconstitutional seriously a year ago. I'm just one of them.
