Right, it would be hard for anybody to argue that the Commerce Clause can require the people to buy something, but that's not exactly the issue in front of us. The question presented here, rather, is whether the Federal government can create a tax for people who don't have health insurance. This is where the Tax & Spend Clause will likely come into play.
Well I am glad that we have your 4 postings to gain wisdom from.... anyway....
I tend to look at the positives not the negatives in terms of the legal marketplace. Look at it from this standpoint: Society will probably become more and more litigious as the years go by. History has proven this to be true. Next, as the middle class people no longer enjoy jobs such as 25 dollar an hour janitors or non skilled laborers making 50k a year- these middle class and also lower income people will certainly want to become claimants against someone to pay the bills (goverment, former employer, insurance company). Lawyers will certainly have to be involved in either of these situations.
