I guess my name is nobody.

Is anyone really surprised that the leaders of the United States Congress do not even have a basic understanding of the Constitution? It was not a trick question, it was not a tough question.

( – Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) could not explain what part of the Constitution grants Congress the power to force every American to buy health insurance – as all of the health care overhaul bills currently do.

Leahy, whose committee is responsible for vetting Supreme Court nominees, was asked by where in the Constitution Congress is specifically granted the authority to require every American purchase health insurance. Leahy answered by saying that “nobody questions” Congress’ authority for such an action.

I guess I am one of the million of nobodies out there. There is no Constitutional authority and they know it. They will hem and haw and call you names for asking. How dare you ask such a thing NOBODY questions us!

I'm nobody. We are legion.
