Rep. Phil Hare (D-Ill.) doesn't care about the Constitution

Check it out here.

It's a startling administration by the Downstate Democratic congressman that when it comes to health care, he doesn't care what the Constitution says. He won't (or can't) answer what part of the Constitution authority to pass Obama/Dem/Health legislation.

If he's right, there's nothing that Congress can't do, including taking over local police forces on the premise that some of the traffic going through town is interstate commerce, and, as such, it can direct truck trains to take a shortcut down your local street.

  • This guy is a democrat, not a republican as your title seems to illustrate. There is a difference you know. One group stands for moral issues, hard work for an honest day's pay, and taking responsibility for one's own actions, the other is a democrat.

    Thank you very much for the correction. It was a slip of the synapse, which is an increasing occurrence.
