Quote from : Wikipedia : 10th Amendment to the United States Constitution
The Tenth Amendment (Amendment X) of the United States Constitution, which is part of the Bill of Rights, was ratified on December 15, 1791.
The Tenth Amendment restates the Constitution's principle of federalism by providing that powers not granted to the national government nor prohibited to the states by the constitution of the United States are reserved to the states or the people.
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
Quote from : Wikipedia : Preamble to the United States Constitution
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
...we will back those states suing to get this repealed.

Is this not what democracy is all about? Get an issue, argue about it and make the necessary concessions etc., then vote on it.
Oh, I know the losers often cry "foul", but then if the result had gone the other way...
Sorry to simplify it, but there you are. If you do not like it then the next time you vote you make your vote count and maybe the issue which has got you so vexed will be changed.

Regarding "Mandatory Insurance"
Currently, in the USA:
If you drive a car, you need insurance.
If you own a house, you need insurance.
If you have a wife, children or dependents, you should have life insurance. Simply prudent.
I view this as much the same way.
Did I really say Chillax?
