    By what AUTHORITY does Congress have to create NON Government jobs?

    By what AUTHORITY does Congress have to set CEO's and other executives pay at PRIVATE Corporations?

    By what AUTHORITY does Congress have to limit private Companies from importing oil into this Country?

    Just curious?

    But if you notice, the word used is regulate not administer. That's the beef most people have, not that government should propose and make regulations on business, but that Government is actually running businesses.

    People believe in the "Separation of Church and State", there should be a "Separation of Public and Private" as well.

    The Commerce clause does not grant power to Congress to order private companies on pay. never has never will.

    "Regulate commerce". Remember when the former junkie community activist called the US Chamber of Commerce something like a "sinister tool of the capitalist dogs" just before the November elections? Thank God for the republican majority or the neo-socialist crooks would have regulated commerce down the road to 3rd world status..

    Notice he can not actually LIST the clause from the Constitution that gives the Government these supposed powers? Or how Jillian, whom claimed the Government had these powers hasn't even posted here?

    The U.S. Constitution does not give authority to the gov't. to run private business, the dimwits like to think so because they are socialists who believe in gov't. control.

    Why was Boehner running around saying "where are the jobs?" all the time? You can't have your cake and eat it too.

    Why not? They certainly seem to feel free about telling them who they may hire. I never see you getting your panties in a twist about anyone being forced to not hire the non-documented.
