A Genuine Question

If it’s true that the U.S. federal government can regulate inactivity (ie, not buying health insurance) because somewhere down the road, that inactivity might impact commerce (you might get sick, then you might decide to go to a hospital, then you might not have the money to pay, then you might raise health care costs for everyone else), then what can the government NOT regulate under the Commerce Clause? Is there any limit on the government’s powers, besides what’s in the constitutional amendments?

Can any of the liberals out there imagine a conservative (Palin-run) government that they would not like to have this essentially unlimited regulatory power?
