Steve King Wants To Find Dead Babies In Dumpsters With Jared Polis

Rep. Steve King — one of these folks who believes Obamacare is a violation of the Constitution, or federal law, or gravity — delivered perhaps the best argument against requiring Americans to buy health care insurance: babies don’t benefit! Debating with Rep. Jared Polis, the Iowa Republican insisted “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. Therefore, to compel someone who fits that category to buy an insurance policy cannot be defined within the confines of the interstate commerce clause.” Counters Polis: Oh yeah? Show me! Replies King: Look in the trash cans! [via]
