ConLaw From QueenNancy and the Jesters

QueenNancy, who was not in her our Gulfstream G-5, answered a question.

As it turns out, it might be a "multiple-choice" question... “Madam Speaker, where specifically does the Constitution grant Congress the authority to enact an individual health insurance mandate?”

Pelosi: “Are you serious? Are you serious?” “Yes, yes I am.”

Pelosi then shook her head before taking a question from another reporter. Her press spokesman, Nadeam Elshami, then told that asking the speaker of the House where the Constiution authorized Congress to mandated that individual Americans buy health insurance as not a "serious question.

Later, the Queen's lackey said that the Queen declared the Interstate Commerce Clause justified whatever.

However, Steny Hoyer opined that the authority derives from the "general welfare" clause, while the chair of Senate Judiciary (Leaky Leahy) had no idea whatsoever.

So far we have: A) No idea; B) Commerce clause; C) General Welfare

Only a few miles south, the Constitution is "toilet paper." At least it's being used...

Congresscritters for quite a while have been either a: Ignoring the Constitution or b: using the Commerce Clause to justify much of their bull. The fact that CNS thought Pelosi would answer that question tells me they haven't been paying attention. Queen Nancy, The O and saviour, and jester Harry do what ever the hell they want, and woe unto any who challenge their total authority.

Interesting. They really never stopped to think about it, did they?
