A further implication of this is that if the federal government has the authority to tax a good or service, even if it does not travel across state lines, like health insurance, then the government has the right to regulate that good or service in the form of a mandate.
If in the next session of the Supreme Court the court decides that the mandate in Obamacare is unconstitutional, and then if Cain is elected and gets 999 passed, this opens the door for a democrat president in the future to challenge the Supreme Courts ruling against a mandate.
Also, 999 would effectively kill what little power the courts still give to the 10th Amendment.
