President Obama and his minions have taken to instructing us that Obamacare is the law of the land. But it’s a funny kind of law — a law for the Age of Obama. Like words in the mouth of Humpty Dumpty, Obamacare is a law that means just what Obama chooses it to mean — neither more nor less. A law that is equal to the will of the ruler. Peter Suderman usefully compiles expressions of the ruler’s will as to the law to date. Suderman properly omits a discussion of what I have called Obamacare’s adventures in administrative law, which is a different (if closely related) subject.
