The U.S. Supreme Court's decision to uphold Obamacare reflects a tragic misreading of the law, one which could cost us not just economically but also in terms of liberty.

The court then fundamentally misread Obamacare, contorting to find another authority — the power to tax — for Congress to enact the law.
