Video Description: David Rivkin was the opening keynote address at The Cato Institute's "What a difference a year makes," healthcare debate. the commerce clause does not apply to ObamaCare's individual mandate, noting that it violates fundamental principles in the US Constitution and centuries of precedent case law. He claims that the individual mandate is "the single most unconstitutional piece of statute language in our history," because allowing the government to regulate economic inactivity would allow for federal intervention in virtually every kind of market imaginable.
