But some people are going to get their "broccoli" for free while others will be paying extra for their "broccoli" because they’re covering the "broccoli" costs of all those freeloaders.
Moreover, people all over the country are being bankrupted by the high cost of "broccoli" because they didn’t buy it when it was cheap but waited until they needed it.
All of this is happening because there doesn’t exist a free market for "broccoli"; rather, that market is being controlled by middle men who’ve rigged the system to deny "broccoli" to those who need it most.
Clearly then, the Congress has the needed authority - even the duty - to promote a fairer and more even playing field for consumers of "broccoli" by using its powers under the Commerce Clause to direct us all to buy "broccoli" - or to pay a "broccoli" fine - so that it’s available to us when we inevitably need it.
