    The guy was just giving salesman like points. Nothing else. He even said a number.. what was it. 30 mil that would be covered? Then he said his goal in this is to bring insurance to every American. Isn't there 300 mil + Americans? Dude is a wanna be verbal prestidigitator.

    Great quoting skills there genius. Also, he could have just said "Article 1 Section 8" and he would have answered the question, because the Health Care bill is justified in that section.
    Where is the Health Care Bill mentioned?

    Article I

    Section. 8.

    The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

    To borrow Money on the credit of the United States;

    To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;

    To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;

    To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;

    To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current Coin of the United States;

    To establish Post Offices and post Roads;

    To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries;

    To constitute Tribunals inferior to the supreme Court;

    To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offences against the Law of Nations;

    To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;

    To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces;

    To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;

    To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;

    To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings;--And

    How about a roof over every head?..... can't have general welfare without a roof, and 4 walls of course.

    And power... got to have power.

    And something to cook it on, and don't forget we need to be able to store that food too.

    And how are we to get that food to our house without a car?... and gas, got to have gas too.

    And walk around money..... you can't expect me to sit around all day just staring at these 4 walls.

    That "Welfare clause"?

    He said "I don't [B]worry[/B about the constitution here."

    As in, "I don't expect any serious constitutional challenge."

    Because the bill is not unconstitutional.

    And conservatives who point to article I section 8 need to tell me how the fire department is constitutional but health insurance is not.

    What exactly in the Constitution prevents Health care?

    Well, you would think the Commerce Clause + the 10th Amendment. But maybe I'm just one of those crazy white guys that still believes that the Founders intended for a limited government and would have been pissed had someone suggested their work would lead to a national government requiring the purchase of a private good/service as a condition of citizenship...

    But I'm just another white racist, right?
