Now that the Presidential election season is in full swing, I would like to take a moment to debunk two themes of the Republican candidates. One concerns the constitutionality of “Obama Care”. People, who claim they are big proponents of following the constitution, should take time to read it every now and then. If they go to Article 1, section 8 they’ll be surprised to find “Congress shall have the power to make all laws which shall be necessary and proper…”, also known as the Elastic Clause. The founders put this in because they realized things would come up that they hadn’t thought about.
My other pet peeve is Republicans complaining about the deficit being ran up by Obama. Hey knuckle heads, the president can’t spend a dime without Congress’s approval. In fact, every spending bill starts in the House of Representatives. Last time I checked the Republicans were the majority party in the House.
When I am King, every member of the government will be required to pass a test on the Constitution. They’ll need a score of 90%. They won’t be allowed to vote on legislation until they pass. Finally, a standardize test I can support.
