“Today’s decision makes it clear that President Obama and Democrats overreached and violated the Constitution in their rush to pass a federal takeover of our health care system.”
—Sen. Jim DeMint
A federal district judge in Virginia, Judge Henry E. Hudson, ruled on Monday that the keystone provision in the Obama health care law is unconstitutional.
Here’s a link to the decision. Hat tip to Michelle Malkin.
The 10th Amendment LIMITS the scope of the federal government.
Here’s the 10th amendment:
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
Which means the Constitution prohibits Congress from manufacturing authority it does not have.
The powers laid out to the federal government can be found in Article 1, Section 8. Health care is not in there. Anywhere.
