Massachusetts health insurance law unconstitutional

Two legal expert opinions in the Los Angeles Times conclude that the law requiring residents of Massachusetts to have health insurance is probably unconstitutional. No constitutional challenge has yet been brought to the courts but, if challenged, this approach would likley be struck down. Karl Manheim, law professor at Loyola Law School and Jamie Court of the Consumer Watchdog explain the legal difference between required auto insurance, which is constitutionally legal, and required health insurance which is not.
