"'We will require each bill moving through Congress to include a clause citing the specific constitutional authority upon which the bill is justified,' wrote Republicans. This was music to the Tea Party, which defeated at least one Democrat because they'd asked him to point to the part of the Constitution that justified the Affordable Care Act, and he blew them off, saying he 'didn't worry' about it. Now some Republicans aren't worrying too much about it." (03/23/11)
