Randy Barnett lectures on the individual mandate at NYU
Author: Luke A. Wake
This is an excellent lecture from Professor Randy Barnett on the individual mandate, which PLF is challenging.

Under the PPACA Sissel is required to purchase health insurance against his will. Barnett explains why that mandate is unconstitutional here.
