Obamacare ignores US Supreme Court

Right now states license and discipline doctors. And that’s plenty of oversight. In 2006 the U.S. Attorney General tried to interfere in how Oregon doctors used controlled substances to treat patients. The U.S. Supreme Court struck down the federal intrusion. (Gonzalez v. Oregon, 2006) The Justices warned it would amount to a “radical shift of authority from the States to the Federal government to define general standards of medical practice in every locality.”

That is what Obamacare does. It puts the federal government between you and your doctor with an eye toward limiting your care—just what the president promised would not happen.
