The only problem is that she is in favor of “big spending” on ethanol subsidies that have proven to be more polluting, more damaging to gasoline engines and of course that’s tax money used to destroy. Those subsidies artificially raised the price of cornmeal around the word which was a major contributing factor in the so-called “Arab Spring”. But Iowa farmers have been sucking on that particular teat for so long, I don’t believe anyone can be elected from Iowa that is against it no matter how much pollution and damage it causes.

I had thought they were extinct!!! I guess just on the endangered species list.

Rep. Louie Gohmert calls ’em like he sees ’em and has a clear view of those traitorous go along to get along scum that have infected the Republican party since before George Wallace said (and echoed by Ross Perot, as well as Ralph Nader), “There’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the Republicans and Democrats.” Nearly all professional politicians are so enamoured by their status of faux nobility the assume “the divine right of kings” and think more as rulers than servants, thus the poll that shows 60% of their “subjects want to throw ever last one of them out!

A Supreme Court ruling upholding the individual mandate “will really be, if not a death blow, then certainly a very severe blow to the whole idea that the federal government’s powers are limited and that it’s not the case that the federal government can do pretty much whatever it wants,” says George Mason University law professor Ilya Somin, author of an amicus brief in U.S Department of Health and Human Services v. Florida, a challenge to the Affordable Care Act that the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear later this month.

Reason.tv sat down with Somin to discuss why his brief focuses on the individual mandate, what the chances of success are, and whether or not a mandate to buy insurance could empower Congress to pass a mandate that all Americans buy a health food like broccoli.

“There’s a lot of industries that have a lot of lobbying power and interest group clout that could promote mandates for themselves,” says Somin.
