    - nsaidi, CNN iReport producer

    The ACA with its mandate forcing all Americans to purchase a product is unconstitutional and over-reach of the Commerce Clause.

    I  am 100% disabled and have been on Medicare for over a decade. The  current law not only mandates all purchase a product they may or may not  need, but cuts 1/2 billion dollars from Medicare. Medicare needs an  overhaul as well and does not fully address recipients and yet the ACA  is attempting to include all Americans when the national Medicare health  program is inadequate and greatly flawed.

    I  also believe that health care, including Medicare, should be under the  purview of the States under the 10th Amdendment, who are in better  position to craft a health care program that meets the needs of the  individual states' citizens.

    There  are those that mention that the states mandate auto insurance. That is  not the same. Only those who purchase and own cars are required to  purchase auto insurance. All other citizens of that state are not so  required.

    For  health care to be adequately addressed, states are in a better position  to tailor a plan to meet its citizens' health care needs...if the  federal government would get out of the way.

    From the Cornfield, I believe the Supreme Court should deem the individual mandate unconstitutional.
