Obamacare: Unconstitutional, but Necessary

When I listened to the debates about the Affordable Health Care Act in front of the Supreme Court justices the other week, I had one recurring thought:

Are We Too Dumb for Democracy?

It's official. Scientists have declared that the American people may be "too dumb to pick the right person to lead us."
