Rule of Law

Chairman Emeritus Conyers, There is no “Good and Welfare” Clause

June 28th, 2012 - 6:37 am

The former Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee opines that Obamacare is Constitutional based on the “Good and Welfare” Clause.  Of course no such clause exists in the Constitution.  When you finish laughing at Conyers, consider how frightening his constitutional illiteracy really is.

Devoid of actual knowledge of the Constitution, lawmakers like Conyers have spent decades expanding federal power.  As Ronald Reagan said, the expansion of federal power necessarily means the loss of liberty.  So Conyers invents a “Good and Welfare” clause to justify government’s takeover of health care, and governments trampling of religious liberties.  When you’re done laughing at him, you should be angry.
