So I'm listening to Randy Barnett on the ruling on C-Span, and he keeps making this very odd point. He's making the argument I'm sure you all have heard that while the court came down in favor of Obama care, a majority supported a more conservative view of the commerce clause. Fair enough. But in explaining this Barnett says that there was a five to four majority on his side, in favor of a "limited and enumerated powers" view of the Constitution.
What exactly does Barnett think the other four think of the Constitution? What about the rest of us?
Is he under the impression that we thought the Constitution was about "unlimited and unstated powers"????
It can be very strange sometimes to see how this community distinguishes itself from others.
