RUSH: Sweetwater, Tennessee, B.P., welcome to the program. Nice to have you here.
CALLER: Hello, Rush, just want to let you know it’s an absolute pleasure to be talking to you today.
RUSH: Thank you very much, sir.
CALLER: All right, sir. I’ll get right to the point because time is creeping up on us here. My questions, Rush, surround the constitutionality of the health care bill. Being that the United States was founded on the principles of the republican form of democracy, with all the appropriate checks and balances built into our Constitution — and I base this argument on the contents of Article I, Section 8 and the Tenth Amendment — why, then, is there nothing being done by the powers that be to thwart the apparent unconstitutionality of this health care bill? And I’m talking specifically I guess at this point of the Supreme Court.
RUSH: Well, there’s nothing to file against yet. It’s just an idea, until this is passed. It was the same thing with campaign finance reform. You couldn’t do anything about that until it became law, and then there were people that challenged it. It’s the same thing here with health care. But there are other elements of Democrat Party policy, programs that are in place that would also provide a challenge. I have a list but I don’t have it in front of me and I can’t think of it right off the top of my head. But there are other areas of constitutionality that could be challenged right now. It’s a good question but unfortunately there’s nothing to challenge. Nothing exists yet, except a bunch of threats and a bunch of ideas. And go to the Supreme Court? That’s a roll of the dice. Look what they did with campaign finance reform. That’s a great question, B.P., and I’m going to get the right answer from legal eagles that I know.
