If making people buy health insurance is unconstitutional, then I would think outlawing it is as well.

Likely. But that is one of the biggest reasons HC cost is so high.

STATES can make their people buy health insurance. Feds cannot.

States could simply call it a tax and condition of doing business in their state....whatever. Feds can't make this proclamation. That's why it's unconstitutional. Now...the feds could simply withhold medicare/aid funding if a state doesn't have steps like this in place...but that's not the law that was passed was it.
