I don’t want to sound heartless…

…but can someone explain to me what funding homeless programs has to do with interstate commerce?

I think I’m going to start using the Constitution as a placemat. It couldn’t be any less respectful of it than the way the Congress, buy cialis health the President, the press and the Supreme Court treat it.

    This is one of those rare instances where they don’t cite the Commerce Clause. Amazingly… if I recall correctly… they actually cite the preamble for justification:

    We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

    They say that saying we want to “promote the general welfare” was enough. Seriously.
