Senator Burris: "Nobody Told me There Would be a Quiz"

CNS News reports:
When asked by what specific part of the Constitution authorizes Congress to mandate that individuals must purchase health insurance, Sen. Roland Burris (D-Ill.) pointed to the part of the Constitution that he says authorizes the federal government "to provide for the health, welfare and the defense of the country." In fact, the word "health" appears nowhere in the Constitution.
I wager Burris never before considered the constitutional foundation of Obamacare. It was enough for him that Democrats want the bill enacted.

Caligula sent a horse to the Senate,
But let’s give the monster a pass.
Burris doesn’t know the Constitution,
So Illinois sent a horse’s ass.
