The one thing the federal government actually has a right to do under the commerce clause is to stop states from interfering with interstate commerce. State laws that bar insurance companies from competing across state lines do just that. Also the tax code should be changed (scrapped really, but that's a fight for another day) so that health care expenses are "above the line" deductible. In other words you should get a dollar for dollar reduction in your tax burden for every dollar spent on healthcare, whether that is for paying your deductible, paying your premium, or just simply paying your doctor outright. And yes, the mandate should be sh&^canned.
