Why Government Doesn't Work, Part Umpteen-Million

So, you poor suckers are gonna get "health care reform". It has nothing to do with health care, and it won't reform a goddamn thing, but you're gonna get it anyway. Tom Harkin (D-Out Wandering) openly admits any bill that's passed will be subject to mission creep almost immediately.
In the future, amending it and changing it isn’t going to be as tough as passing it in the first place.
So, he and his compatriots will continue to tinker and screw around with your health care if they can get it passed. Yay.

Of course, it's not all bad. Depending on where you sit, it may be a great bill.
The health-care industry has captured the regulatory process, and it has used that capture to eliminate any real competition, whether from the government, in the form of a single-payer system, or from new and more efficient competitors in the private sector who might have the audacity to offer a better product at a better price.
Me? I work in the oil industry, so all I can see is a giant screwing coming along.

Finally, I will ask a question that is somewhat antiquated in the modern era. Where, exactly, in the Constitution did we delegate the authority to Congress to require us to buy insurance? I'm just not seeing it anywhere in my copy of the document.
