  • In America this view of equality is enshrined in the Declaration of Independence ("all men are created equal and are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights") and the Constitution ("imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States" and "equal protection of the laws"). In 1935 President Franklin Roosevelt confirmed Ely's beliefs by turning the Works Progress Administration (WPA), which he had established, into a gigantic political machine to transfer money to key states and congressional districts to secure votes.

  • Far too many congressmen underestimate the political ramifications of passing a health care bill that may be unconstitutional. Far too few of them seem to understand why Obamacare's constitutionality is seriously in doubt. Consider the special Medicaid deal the Senate bill provided for Nebraska in order to buy the vote of Ben Nelson, that state's senior senator. At least 13 state attorneys general last week announced plans to challenge the provision, which effectively would exempt Nebraska from paying for Medicaid expansions that the other 49 states must finance. Democrats should not scoff at this threat. The provision is patently unfair to the other 49 states. Worse, it seems to run afoul of Article I, Section 8, which gives Congress the power to "provide for the .. general welfare of ...

  • The indignation on the part of some members of Congress over the bonuses for American International Group Inc. employees has been significant. As pointed out in a previous editorial ("How to get back the AIG bonuses," Opinion, March 18) many of the loudest complainers have received a great deal from those same AIG employees. Their complaints obviously do not ring true. Additionally, many of these senators and representatives seem to think they can simply legislate confiscation of the bonuses. Even the president seems to think he or Congress can stop the payment of the bonuses or recoup the money. For supposedly intelligent people, these politicians don't seem to know much about the U.S. Constitution. President Obama likes to say that he taught constitutional law for 10 years. If he did,...

  • Individually, Americans do not deserve to be subservient to such a fear-mongering, intimidating and powerful agency as the Internal Revenue Service; but collectively, we do. Let's look at it. Since the 1791 ratification of our Constitution, until well into the 1920s, federal spending as a percentage of gross domestic product never exceeded 5 percent, except during war. Today federal spending is 25 percent of our GDP. State and local government spending is about 15 percent of the GDP. That means government spends more than 40 cents of each dollar we earn. If we add government's regulatory burden, which is simply a disguised form of taxation, the government take is more than 50 percent of what we produce.
