Protester to Mark Warner: Which part of the Constitution says you get to take over health care?

Via CNS. We’ve been down this road before but it’s one thing to kick around arguments in the comments and another to watch a U.S. Senator be put on the spot. Warner’s argument won’t appeal to strict constructionists — he concedes that there’s no health-care power, just like there’s no education power — but from a practical standpoint he’s right that this ship has already sailed. Through the Commerce Clause all things are possible, my friends.
This one might be hard to swallow so, to cleanse the palate, I’ve added a second clip below it courtesy of Hot Air Pundit. That should leave you feeling minty fresh.
