I think it is premature to say that the individual mandate is dead based on this phase. Sure, that makes great news and a lot of us happy. But, keep in mind that the SCOTUS is as private in their decisions as the Fed, so we just have to wait for the legal opinion.

Second, and this is a biggie. Of course the Federal government has the right to force you to pay for goods and services. They force me to buy guns, train soldiers, kill civilians, fund the arts, and Nasa, etc etc etc.

The only distinction being made here is whether they have the right to force you to purchase a service or whether they have to take the money first and buy it themselves.

By taking the money first, they can do as they please. Which means, all we will get is a fully government funded (through theft) version of the whole mess when it is all said and done.
