Randy Barnett, Georgetown U Law School Prof and Senior Fellow at Cato Institute and Goldwater Institute on Obamacare Individual Mandate

Embedded below is a very fascinating discussion by Georgetown University Law Prof. Randy Barnett who is also a Senior Fellow at the Cato and Goldwater Institutes. The address was delivered very recently at N.Y.U Law school's annual Friedrich A. von Hayek Lecture.

Prof. Barnett discusses his view that the Individual Mandate compelled under ObamaCare is in fact unconstitutional under the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution. The clip is long, but well worth listening to because Barnett provides an illuminating discussion of Supreme Court ruling history on the Commerce and Necessary & Proper clauses.

  1. Thanks LA. I have a copy on the shelf of his The Structure of Liberty. Once I finish Hayek's Road, I hope to plow into the heavy stuff...
