Andrew Napolitano: Health-Care Reform and the Constitution – WSJ.com.

One of the core tenets of a legal conservative’s philosophy is understanding that Congress is a body of enumerated powers, and in this column Congressman James Clyburn from South Carolina demonstrates classic incomprehension on that point.  Wickard v. Filburn also gets dishonorable mention.  Wickard of course is the Supreme Court case saying that Congress can forbid you from growing wheat in your backyard to feed your milk cow or horses, because that might have an impact on interstate commerce.
