Day 3 at the Supreme Court

Chief Justice Scalia made a comparison between the health care mandate and forcing Americans to buy broccoli: If the government can make you buy insurance, why not broccoli too?
The lengthy debate centered around the fact that granting the government such power over commerce is perhaps setting a dangerous precedent.
Dont you think that if people knew that the broccoli was going to make them healthy and fit, they would buy the broccoli? Of course they would. That's why Popeye bought the spinach!
So if broccoli is like insurance, of course we should buy the broccoli. (I'll even add a little garlic)
Look, the bottom line is insurance can only help us. It'll keep people working and mentally fit, and eating more broccoli!
