Judge Andrew Napolitano hosts an interesting discussion with General Bill McCollum, John Tamny, and Professor Randy Barnett on the constitutionality of the Health Care Bill.
Napolitano’s rapid fire discussion style is clear and crisp, punctuated by sharp declarations such as these below.
On mandates to states:
“Question: Can the Federal Government tell the states how to spend state generated tax dollars?”
On Obama’s argument that health care falls under interstate commerce clauses in constitution:
“Question: When you go to your doctor, is it for a commercial purpose or is it to enhance your health?”
On government bullying of states (threat of medicare funding withdrawal):
“Question: Can the congress order a state legislature to raise taxes? Can the congress tell a state legislature how to spend the moneys thus raised?”
He answers these and other questions in his dialog with his guests. Worth a listen.
