FLUNKING THE CONSTITUTIONAL TEST: “When asked by CNSNews.com what specific part of the Constitution authorizes Congress to mandate that individuals must purchase health insurance, Sen. Roland Burris (D-Ill.) pointed to the part of the Constitution that he says authorizes the federal government ‘to provide for the health, welfare and the defense of the country.’ In fact, the word ‘health’ appears nowhere in the Constitution.” Hey, these clowns don’t read the bills they vote on, so why expect them to have read the Constitution?

UPDATE: Maybe he’s taking his cues from Robert Gibbs.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Related thoughts from Gene Healy.
