Illinois Congressman: “I Don’t Worry About The Constitution”
A Democratic Congressman from Illinois told his constituents that he does not worry about the constitution when it comes to the health care bill signed into law last week by the president, before misquoting from the Declaration of Independence and claiming he had read the 2700 page legislation three times.
Representative Phil Hare made the comments at a meeting yesterday with his constituents in Quincy that was captured on camera.
As Hare was questioned over the constitutionality of forcing 30 million Americans to buy insurance from private companies, one member of the public asked “where in the Constitution” it says the government can do that.
“I don’t worry about the Constitution on this to be honest,” Hare replied.
