By John H. Cochrane – The legal distinctions among a mandate, a tax, a penalty, or a credit, and between federal and state powers, are important legally and constitutionally. But they are irrelevant in economic terms for this law.

Supporters: Try to make this Rube Goldberg contraption work. Good luck. more>
