The Commerce Clause

05/03/2015
Lecturer
Judge Napolitano

Judge Andrew Napolitano explains that the Commerce Clause in the U.S. Constitution was introduced in order to facilitate trade between the states. Unfortunately, Congress and the Courts have interpreted the clause as giving almost unlimited authority over commerce. This clause has been used to justify everything from New Deal era production quotas to the Affordable Care Act’s requirement that all Americans purchase health insurance.

Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst, is a graduate of Princeton University and the University of Notre Dame Law School. He is the youngest life-tenured Superior Court judge in the history of the State of New Jersey. Judge Napolitano lectures nationally on the U.S. Constitution, the rule of law, civil liberties in wartime, and human freedom. He has been published in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, and numerous other publications. His weekly newspaper column is seen by millions every week. The Judge is the author of seven books on the U.S. Constitution, two of which have been New York Times best sellers. His most recent book is Theodore and Woodrow: How Two American Presidents Destroyed Constitutional Freedom.
