I’m creating a new award that will be given out liberally to worthy politicians and prominent businessmen.
I shall name it “The Suede Award For Excellence In Fascism” or SAFEIF for short.
My first recipient is Sen. Diane Feinstein.
Senator Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) said that Congress has the authority to mandate that people buy health insurance and that there is no constitutional limit on Congress’ power to enact such mandates, adding that this unlimited authority stemmed from the Commerce clause of the Constitution.
“Well, I would assume it would be in the Commerce clause of the Constitution. That’s how Congress legislates all kinds of various programs.”
Of course, Sen. Feinstein is not alone in her total disregard for constitutional limitations on government.
Sen. Conrad also believes the US federal government has total authority to run every aspect of your life.
“Could you specifically say where in the Constitution does Congress get the authority to mandate that individuals get health insurance?”
Conrad said: “No, but I’ll refer you to the legal counsel for the Senate and they’re the ones that lead there as the full legal basis for the individual mandate — and I assume it’s in the Commerce clause.”
