On the history of constitutional objections to Obama's healthcare plan

Andy Koppelman (Northwestern) has an interesting overview.  The objections were latecomers, and they went viral not because of their merits (they're awful arguments, that you couldn't get away with in class) but because of an energetic political movement in the United States devoted to thwarting human progress and well-being--which is basically what Jack Balkin (Yale) says, though more politely!
