"Today's Supreme Court opinion finding ObamaCare to be constitutional may just be the final nail in the coffin of limited government; especially troubling because authored by a supposedly "conservative" and "non-activist" Chief Justice, John Roberts. The decision in fact justifies an extremely liberal and activist expansion of federal government power to force individuals to do its bidding -- in this case, forcing people to purchase a one-size-fits-all, government-defined health care policy. It is an opinion utterly devastating to the principle of limited and defined government power.

Like my hometown Atlanta Braves, the Justice Department is in a slump. The controversial “Fast and Furious” scandal has been the focus of Washington politics for weeks, and may come to a head this week if the full House votes to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt. The problems at the Justice Department, however, run deeper than this single crisis.
