* The Constitutional Point of Order stems from the “commerce clause” in the Constitution (Art. 1, Sec. 8, Clause 3), which authorizes Congress to “regulate Commerce…among the several States.”
* The question of constitutionality arises from whether the individual mandate included in the Senate bill–which penalizes individuals for not having health insurance–falls outside this jurisdiction by regulating economic inactivity and forcing individuals into commercial activity.
