The Long History of Federal Power-Grabbing

PowerLine points to an essay by Richard Epstein which reviews SCOTUS' history of facilitating Congressional power-grabbing.  It could be subtitled "The Death of Federalism by 1/2 Dozen Cuts.)

(You'll be shocked---SHOCKED, I say--to learn that the erosion began to gather steam under both Roosevelts.)

Suffice it to say that Wickard is the most likely focus of the upcoming ObozoCare decision.  Epstein does not believe that SCOTUS will overturn Wickard.

But he DOES think that they could limit its scope, and thereby invalidate ObozoCare.
