The Question Before the Court: Constitutionality not Morality
Morality vs. Constitutionality"), the question before the court is not whether President Obama's health care legislation is the right thing to do or not, the question is whether it is constitutional or not. The two are not necessarily the same thing. Something can be the right thing to do but may not be constitutional. As a case in point: slavery was constitutional prior to the passage of the 13th Amendment. I would hope all readers would agree that it was immoral before then.
