Obama acts as though we no longer have a Constitution

Obamacare is too conservative. The government needs to replace private insurance companies in a complete takeover of health care. That’s the system California’s union leaders are pressuring Democrats to create, now that they enjoy supermajorities in both chambers of the Legislature.
In 1965, California lawmakers named serpentine the state rock because it symbolized the Gold Rush years and contained a mineral being put to myriad industrial uses.
Ms. Romero agrees, saying supermajorities give Democrats control of the state’s purse strings — and, therefore, they can decide how much the state should spend on information campaigns, public service announcements and other initiatives that sway public opinion.
AFSCME has given $26,303,148 to the California Democratic Party since 2003, according to FollowTheMoney.org, a nonpartisan, nonprofit research organization based in Helena, Mont. And Ms. Romero said its generosity will likely not go unnoticed by the Legislature.
