loathe the oath

Posted on: March 27, 2010

Love this recent statement from Judge Napolitano. (He GETS it :))


Politicians from both parties routinely disregard the Constitutional limits imposed on them by the nation’s founding document,
Napolitano says.

“The problem with the Constitution is not any structural problem,” says Napolitano. “The problem with the constitution is that those who take an oath to uphold it don’t take their oath seriously.

For example, just a month ago in interviewing Congressman Jim Clyburn, who’s the No. 3 ranking Democrat in the House, I said to him, Congressman Clyburn, can you tell me where in the Constitution the Congress is authorized to regulate healthcare? He said, ‘Judge, most of what we do down here,’ referring to Washington, ‘is not authorized by the Constitution. Can you tell me where in the Constitution we’re prohibited from regulating healthcare?’

Napolitano says that reflects a misunderstanding of what the Constitution actually is. “He’s turning the Constitution on its head, because Congress is not a general legislature,” he says. “It was not created in order to right every wrong. It exists only to legislate in the 17 specific, discrete, unique areas where the Constitution has given it power. All other areas of human area are reserved for the states.”

My Comment:
Plain and simple – the Obama health care plan is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Any political leader who was involved in promoting it and supporting it has broken their oath.
