Why are people so worked up about the individual mandate? If Congress could pass Social Security and Medicare, it’s hard to understand why requiring people to purchase health insurance might be questionable. Law professor Elizabeth Price Foley explains that the difference stems from the different powers the Constitution gives Congress. While Medicare and Social Security are based in on Congress’s power to tax and spend, the individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act is based inon Congress’s power to regulate commerce. The Supreme Court will soon decide whether that power to regulate commerce also includes the power to require people to participate in commerce.

Who is responsible for the high profile intelligence leaks make the president look tough? And, are the leaks really the big story?

6:06 – My Opening Statement

11:16 – “I don’t know whether to go to Mr. Schiff or not, but I guess I will” – Judy Biggert (R)
I explain to Chairwoman Judy Biggert why federal involvement in home lending has created more problems than it has solved.

16:22 – “Despite all the sound and fury, there’s not a lot of details…” – Robert Hurt (R)
My proposals that old regulations be repealed, rather than new ones proposed, in order for the free market to come up with solutions are repeatedly lost on Congressman Robert Hurt.

25:16 – “Mr. Schiff, I just have one question…” – Emanuel Cleaver (D)
Congressman Emanuel Cleaver II unsuccessfully tries to ‘nail’ me. Instead, a spirited discussion ensues in which I remind the congressman of the moral hazard and economic costs of government subsidies.

30:38 – “Maybe that happens in an Ayn Rand novel…” – Dan Sherman (D)
Congressman Dan Sherman asserts that as a practical matter the federal government, in one way or another, insures all homes, and that only characters in an Ayn Rand novel would believe otherwise.
