The "good and welfare" clause?

Are members of Congress all really this stupid? I know they all aren't, but this one certainly is.

Cybercast News Service (CNS) has done us all a wonderful public service over the last few months by asking prominent congresscritters to explain on the record where they find the Constitutional authority to pass these craptastic pieces of legislation like the Health Care Control Act of 2010.

Previous winners of CNS's illustration of dumbassdom include Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, Blanche Lincoln, Daniel Akaka, and Roland Burris.

The latest recipient of this dubious honor is our favorite Michigan congressional representative whose Detroit city council member wife just got sentenced to the pokey for taking bribes, John Conyers:

So to recap, the health care monstrosity is authorized by the "good and welfare clause" and "a couple others." Got that?

Thank you Representative Conyers for clearing all of that up for us.

We are so screwed.

Good Day to You, Sir

Sometimes I think those idiots should be required to take a test--kinda like your junior high students do. I wonder which group would score higher....
