The Question Club
The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected. The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State. |
Do you think when Barack Obama was teaching constitutional law, he believed nationalized health care should be implemented?
When he was teaching constitutional law, do you believe he was familiar with what James Madison said in Federalist #45?
Wouldn't "concern the lives [...] internal order, improvement, and prosperity" mean health care wasn't considered a problem to be handled by the national government?
Would Barack Obama stand behind the podium today and basically say "I disagree with you just because I disagree with you"?
