At a town hall meeting, Congressman Pete Stark (D-CA) answers a voter’s concerns about the constitutionality of ObamaCare, and the implications of this kind of power grab by Washington, by wearily asserting that, “The federal government can do most anything in this country.”
Just live with it: that seems to be his message. All that stuff about “the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution,” blah blah blah, well, that’s just stories for children. We’re grown-ups now. Welcome to the United States of America in 2010.
It’s not your father’s republic anymore.
