The Leaders of the 112th’s Cadre of Genius flex their mental muscle for America.  First up, Representative Steve King (R-IA) offers his evidence of the unconstitutionality of health insurance for all Americans being regulated by Interstate Commerce.

Cue: King

There have always been and likely will always be, babies that were born, lived and died within the jurisdictions of the individual states who never cross a state line, access no health care and therefore do not impact interstate commerce.”

Graciously, Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) pretends like King is not insane, runs with the premise of a living baby, and reminds the congressman the child would eventually get immunization.

Cue: King

I hate to tell you, but they show up in garbage cans around this country, sir.”

Doh!  King totally forgot to check his donor’s list for owners of garbage collection services (HQ based in Missouri) who would charge those babies a fee for using their dumpsters!  And charge the mothers for storage.

Total Interstate Commerce. 😉

  1. Now… How many Americans have ancestors who stole land from Natives and therefore were illegal immigrants?

    I feel Steve King may end up in a plane for England crying…

  2. i looked and looked, and i found that elmo, ernie, cookie monster, and big bird all went to the doctor. however, even despite this, i haven’t found a reference to oscar the grouch seeking medical help or advice. rep. king might be correct about the garbage pail kids (which, by the way, i have hundreds of in my attic).

  3. Why is it they don’t make a fuss about mandatory car insurance? Because a car has a known value. And you’d think this hyper-right bunch would know the value of a human life from their previous role models. It’s 1640 ReichsMarks.

  4. Hmm I have looked in my garbage can and have never found a baby yet. When Steve King finds his garbage babies does he not call the police who then take said garbage baby to a hospital? Maybe he just puts more garbage on top and stomps his foot in to compact it. Sounds like the makings of a novel, Steve King.

  5. If I would have seen just the script, i would have said “no way.” … this is fake … He makes a lot of those on Capitol Hill look bad … Oops … they already do a good job on their own. …. rewind …. Relatively speaking, he makes the bad look not so bad. Oh well … back to my bowl of gruel.
