O'Malley obfuscates on Obamacare

Shame on Gov.Martin O'Malleyfor trying to confuse The Sun's readers concerning the issue before the Supreme Court in its consideration of the Affordable Care Act ("Health reform has been critical for Md." May 4).

As a lawyer and a member of the Maryland Bar, Governor O'Malley knows full well that the issue before the court has nothing to do with the substance of the law or whether or not it is beneficial to many people. The sole issue is whether Obamacare is within the limited Constitutional powers of the Congress. The nature of Congress' powers is much more than "an abstract legal analysis," as the issue is characterized by Mr. O'Malley. Whether or not Obamacare is beneficial to the people of Maryland is not an issue.
