Republicans couldn't really be this stupid, could they?

Unless House Majority Leader-designate Eric Cantor was thoroughly misquoted by Politico, which is entirely possible, the Republican sellout has already begun.

Just four weeks after the American people gave Republicans their biggest sweep of the House in modern history, the new House leadership is not only planning compromise with the hated Obamacare law, they are announcing it publicly!

Instead of scrapping the entire abomination because it is unconstitutional and counterproductive for Washington to attempt to manage individual health-care decisions or make policy for 300 million of us, Cantor, who presumably speaks for GOP leadership in the House, says he wants to keep the "good" provisions of Obamacare.

Barring insurance companies from refusing coverage to patients with a pre-existing condition;

Allowing young people to stay on their parents' insurance plans until age 26. Now, I know there were Republicans pushing these ideas before Obamacare was enacted. The question now is why?

Where in the Constitution does it suggest Congress has the power to bar companies from offering certain kinds of services?

Where in the Constitution does it suggest sick people have a right to buy health insurance without regard to their condition?

Where in the Constitution does it suggest Congress has the power to decide arbitrarily how long parents can insure their adult children?
