The four best legal arguments against Obamacare.

The fourth is probably the most devastating to Obamacare. No contract can be enforced if you are forced to sign it.

American contract law rests on the principle of mutual assent. If I hold a gun to your head and force you to sign a contract, no court of law will honor that document since I coerced you into signing it. Mutual assent must be present in order for a contract to be valid and binding.

Once again, we are skirting around that forgotten word called freedom. Obamacare has nothing to do with freedom. It requires participation, something that is fundamentally hostile to this country’s culture and law.

  • I would say that the party of the second part (the people), did assent to the contract, as the law was passed by elected officials. If the ‘forced participation’ argument was valid, then no law passed by Congress, or indeed, any legislative body, would be enforceable. I don’t plan on buying mandated health insurance, nor do I plan on paying a fine. And yes, I am willing to go to jail.
