    It's under the "good and welfare" clause you fucking dopes !

    John Conyers (D), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee surely knows a lot more about the Constitution than you assholes.....


    CNSNews.com - House Judiciary Chairman Says Constitution's Non-Existent ?Good and Welfare Clause? Authorizes Congress to Force Americans to Buy Health Insurance



    During an interview Capitol Hill Friday, CNSNews.com asked Rep. Conyers, “The individual mandate in the bill requires individuals to purchase health insurance. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has said that never before in the history of the United States has the federal government required any one to purchase any good or service. What part of the Constitution do you think gives Congress the authority to mandate individuals to purchase health insurance?”

    Conyers said: “Under several clauses, the good and welfare clause and a couple others. All the scholars, the constitutional scholars that I know -- I’m chairman of the Judiciary committee, as you know -- they all say that there’s nothing unconstitutional in this bill and if there were, I would have tried to correct it if I thought there were.”


    This is from a stand up guy who has NEVER been involved in anything shady either.......:eusa_whistle:

    Or perhaps he perverts the constitution to fit those clauses to his views.

    For someone who would take the word of this one man, who seems to side with the passage of this illegal Health Care Reform Bill, you got a lot of nerve calling someone a liar or a moron. :lol:

    I don't care if he has or hasn't. He's still a bullshitting, mouthbreathing ass clown if he really believes that. For one thing, there really IS no such thing as a "good and welfare clause" in the Constitution. The phrase is "general welfare", so I'm very skeptical of any assurance of Constitutionality coming from someone who can't even quote the document correctly.

    Furthermore, a section of writing intended to provide a reason for the preceding clauses is not, in and of itself, a set of marching orders. If the Founding Fathers had intended that spiel about "general welfare" to be taken as an all-inclusive "do whatever the hell you think is a good idea" instruction, why did they bother wasting all that time and those words delineating the specific powers of the Congress, and later the other two branches of government? What's the point of saying, "Congress has the power to do this, and this, and this, and then whatever else it feels like at the moment"?
