The Center for American Progress positively beams that “the University of Washington held a debate about the constitutionality of the recently passed health care reform bill…[but] none of the panelists at the debate argued that the bill was unconstitutional because the organizers of the event couldn’t find any law professors who held that view.”

The folks at U-Dub obviously didn’t try very hard.  My Cato Institute colleague David Kopel compiles a list of law professors (himself included) who believe the law is unconstitutional.

Just looked at the brief video challenge there by Ilya Shapiro. Anybody taking him up on it yet? If not, why not?

If so, let the debate begin, and let it be widely shown. Citizens are already engaged. So are their states. Many states. Including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s state.
