Nancy Pelosi Shocked at Being asked if Congress Has the Right to Impose Health Care on People - Audio 10/22/09
Here is brief audio of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi being asked where the U.S. Constitution gives the Congress authority to mandate that individual people must buy health insurance. She gave an incredulous response: "Are you serious? Are you serious?"
Absolutely. That is a serious question. In fact, some believe such a mandate, if enacted, could very well bring a Constitutional test that is winnable. But Pelosi is simply shocked at the idea that Democrats could be told there is something the Government is not allowed to do.
