Just to speak the concept aloud is to be struck dumb by the breathtaking arrogance of Congress in passing this bill, and the disregard for the Constitutional limits on their power.” I had the opportunity last Friday to speak with South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster, who graciously made himself available to me to answer some questions about the legal challenges to the Obamacare bill.  I have, in private, expressed skepticism about the legal merits of these challenges, for a couple of reasons: first, any challenge asserting that Congress has ...
Coburn vs. Kagan on Commerce Clause |
Thank you, Senator Tom Coburn, for raising the issue of the abuse of the Commerce Clause, the most popular excuse for civil liberties violations from the left. In other Elena Kagan greatest hits, she again sounds like a moron defending the Constitutionality of book-banning . Subscribe to blog feed. Ralph E. June 29th, 2010 at 6:58 pm Just a logical extension of passing the health care bill. If the health care bill passes Constitutional mustard, then surely what we eat, buy, etc. will be coming down the line. MCRock, PhD June 29th, 2010 at 8:19 pm The only thing this clip shows is how stupid Tom Coburn is. Kagan, who I ... market research, surveys and trends

Hot Air » GOP health-care reform cost: $61 billion, cut deficit ...
CBO director Douglas Elmendorf scored the new proposal from House Republicans on health-care reform and gave them plenty of ammunition to use against expansive and expensive Democratic plans for government takeovers.  Their plan, which relies on interstate competition, HSAs, and tort reform, would only cost $61 billion in the first ten years of the plan — or slightly less than 6% of what Democrats plan to spend to overhaul the entire system: This evening, CBO released a preliminary analysis of a substitute amendment to H.R. 3962, the Affordable Health Care for America Act, proposed by Representative John Boehner, the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
No need to pretend - she's a liberal
U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan spoke last week before the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for her nomination to be an associate justice of the Supreme Court. In explaining the limits of judicial empathy, Elena Kagan explained that, however a judge might try to see a case from the perspective of all parties, "it's law all the way down." I wouldn't disagree, but there is so much more to say. Her allusion is to a story, much favored by academics, of a woman who objects to a lecture on astronomy. "You are wrong," she tells the speaker, "the Earth rests on the back of a giant tortoise." Flashing a wicked smile, the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
The 17th Amendment Revisited
Original provisions of the Constitution intended to prevent Congress from enacting “dumb” laws were vitiated by ratification of the 17th Amendment. Before ratification of the 17th Amendment it’s unlikely that a Senate committee would have needed to raise the sort of question posed by Senator Coburn during confirmation hearings on Elena Kagan’s nomination to the Supreme Court. A Wall Street Journal editorial reports: If Congress passed a law saying Americans were required to eat three fruits and three vegetables a day, Mr. Coburn asked, would that be legitimate under the Commerce Clause? It sounds like a ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

U.S. History: federalism and the articles, necessary and proper ...
How is a federal system (federalism) different from the U.S. Government system under the Articles of Confederation? Also, Why can some argue today that federalism, and the 10th Amendment, does not have the same meaning that it did in the late 1700's and 1800's? Answer  Thanks, Nancy, for the question:  Federalism in the United States has evolved quite a bit since it was first implemented in 1787. In that time, two major kinds of federalism have dominated political theory.  The first, dual federalism, holds that the federal government and the state governments are co-equals, each sovereign. In this ...
