The Constitutional Issue In the ACA Case
I think Andrew Koppelman gets it in one paragraph:
The philosophy they relied upon, which Iíll call Tough Luck Libertarianism, holds that property rights are absolute and any redistribution to care for the sick violates those rights. If youíre sick, and you canít afford to pay for medical care with your own money, thatís your tough luck. The judgesí willingness to read this notion into the Constitution is very big news, dwarfing even the fate of the ACA, which is itself the most important social legislation in decades.
