Silberman Targeting Filburn?

Steve Hayward makes the case that Silberman's approval of ObozoCare was a setup for Conservatives.

...maybe Silberman is up to something here.  He rested his “sparing” opinion on the precedent of the infamous 1941 Wickard v. Filburn case, one of the most preposterous decisions ever rendered by our robed masters.  That’s the one where the Court ruled that Ohio farmer Roscoe Filburn couldn’t grow wheat above his government-mandated quota even if it was for his own use and not for sale in interstate commerce.  It blew out the walls of the commerce clause.  The Court’s reasoning was a fancy footwork version of “What if everybody did this?  Think of the effect this would have on the economy?”

Well, Filburn is in a class along with Roe and Dred Scott.  Wouldn't it be fun to watch SCOTUS finally knock that down along with ObozoCare---all in one hit?

I wish I was as optimistic as Mr. Hayward....
