Missouri voters have shot down the Obamacare mandate for individuals to buy health insurance, and other states have adopted various means of fighting the new law that is a legislative boondoggle. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) demonstrated the lack of logic in the poorly conceived bill most in Congress admitted they did not even read before passing.
Making her pitch to a group of supporters, Pelosi said, “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.”
I get Chris Matthews-type shivers when I read a statement like that from the woman who leads the U.S. House.
At every turn when there is dissatisfaction from states about vague, poorly written federal legislation that can be extremely costly, media and statists cite the supremacy clause in the U.S. Constitution.
