For John, BLUF: Federal (and State) laws are becoming too complex. It will harm the Citizens in many ways.
It seems to me that Government has become too complicated. The average citizen just isn't able to keep up with the complexities. Or, able to hire the lawyer and accountant necessary to understand the wrinkles that will allow them to not only operate within the law, but to save money.
Here is Law Professor Glenn Reynold's six page paper, "Ham Sandwich Nation: Due Process When Everything is a Crime". If that link doesn't work, this one might.
Now comes Columnist George Will with a column arguing that Chief Justice Roberts put the ACA on a path to failure. Here is the lede and next paragraph:
A willow, not an oak. So said conservatives of Chief Justice John Roberts when he rescued the Affordable Care Act (ACA) — a.k.a. Obamacare — from being found unconstitutional.I will leave the details for you to read at the link, but it has to do with the complexities of our large, intertwined, system, and the ability to raise taxes.
But the manner in which he did this may have made the ACA unworkable, thereby putting it on a path to ultimate extinction.
