The Irrelevance of the Broccoli Argument against the Insurance Mandate — NEJM

The Irrelevance of the Broccoli Argument against the Insurance Mandate — NEJM

"... in 1790, the first Congress, which was packed with framers, required all ship owners to provide medical insurance for seamen; in 1798, Congress also required seamen to buy hospital insurance for themselves. In 1792, Congress enacted a law mandating that all able-bodied citizens obtain a firearm. "
So just what is unconstitutional about requiring all to get insurance?
