Comment on the Belmont Club:
"Holding the Bag"

The production of 1,000 page plus bills, unread by the legislators, and in part unwritten at their enactment, will be remembered as the Democrats contribution to American constitutional practice. For people who were entranced in school by the legerdemain used to find regulatory power in the penumbra of the 14th Amendment or the Commerce Clause the pattern of sloppiness of construction and opportunities for administrative or judicial abuse are not a bug but a feature.
