Reader Opinion: “Protect” the Needy, NOT “Subsidize” the Needy!

Politicians often quote from the Constitution “ to provide for the … general Welfare” as justification for welfare spending.

Why the Supreme Court ObamaCare Ruling is Proper

Like everyone else on the right, I detest this ruling and truly hoped that it had gone the other way. But in the back of my mind, when the government made the argument that the mandate was a tax, I thought that was something worth worrying about.
