Ommerce Clause WIckard v. Filburn and Affordable Care Act

This paper will trace the history of the Supreme Courts efforts to define the scope of the commerce power. The intent is to analyze that history so as to better understand how the court arrived at its decision in Wickard v. Filburn case (1942) and then to suggest what questions might be raised in attempts to apply the Filburn decision to the Affordable Care Act.

Consider Justice Jacksons reasonings into account for the decision.
Consider the E.C. Knight case
