I am wondering if you made a mistake when you said this, The argument that the mandate is not justified by the Commerce Clause merely means that it's not within the powers given to the states. Shouldn't that be not within the powers given to the the Congress ? Or if you look at the constitution as states giving power to the Federal government given by the states?
