But, as we know from the media treatment of Barbara Boxer that when Democrats misrepresent American history — or their own record — well, it just isn’t newsworthy. Jeff Dunetz reports about Lois Capps, the Democratic Congressman from Santa Barbara.
Last year, while holding a town hall about the Obamacare bill she was asked where in the Constitution does it say the government can provide health care? Her answer was that the Constitution guarantees Health, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Of course, Capps is wrong on two counts, the phrase is LIFE, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, and the line is in the Declaration of Independence not the constitution. This is the quality of some of our people in Congress, they have no idea about the document they are sworn to uphold.
