Sunshine31-People feel that changes are being made without the people’s consent and most of the measures taken recently are unfair and unconstitutional.
For example, the Health Care bill where the majority of the American people did not want was passed anyway.
There is currently a legal challenge to this bill because of the constitutionality of it. The clause in which Americans would be forced to purchase health insurance approved by the government is the main constitutional argument.
Critics of this plan say that the plan violates the commerce clause of the 10th amendment. According to the 10th amendment only the states can regulate interstate commerce which buying health insurance or any product for that matter would fit.
If this is how we define cooperative federalism, then I don't want any part of it.
