Suppose the federal government introduces a new religion and requires your attendance. It’s pretty clear the Constitution does not provide our government with the right to do that. However, according to the precedent established by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and other justices, the government would have the right to impose a tax upon those who did not attend services at its church. If this tax is large enough to coerce even one person to attend, the government would have come up with another way to invoke its power over the individual. We can thank Obamacare for such a threat to our freedom.
