Give Me 64 oz. or Give Me Death!

The New York Court of Appeals ruled the New York City ban on super-sized soft drinks unconstitutional late last week, dealing a small but significant blow to the nanny state. According to the ruling, the city’s Board of Health “exceeded the scope of its regulatory authority” by engaging in law-making and infringing upon the legislative jurisdiction of the City Council of New York.

"The passing of the Affordable Care Act stands as one of the largest expansions of the unconstitutional administrative state in the country\u2019s history. Since the Progressive Era, the United States has been steadily drifting away from the founding-era principles of republicanism, separation of powers, and respect for the rule of law and towards an ever-expanding and overreaching government no longer abiding by its constitutional limits. Congress has repeatedly delegated its legislative authority to independent agencies and departments removed from the political process, while the judicial branch looks the other way."

ObamaCare and the Ever-Expanding Administrative State

The passing of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), commonly referred to as ObamaCare, stands as one of the largest expansions of the unconstitutional administrative state in the country’s history. Since the Progressive Era, the United States has been steadily drifting away from the founding-era principles of republicanism, separation of powers, and respect for the rule of law and towards an ever-expanding and overreaching government no longer abiding by its constitutional limits. Congress has repeatedly delegated its legislative authority to independent agencies and departments removed from the political process, while the judicial branch looks the other way.

"When most people think of laws today, they think of legislation passed by Congress. Yet, the primary source of law that governs society today developed from common law and court cases. Today, case law is secondary to statutory law set down by federal and state legislators. As a result, the United States is burdened with a massive amount of unnecessary legislation."

Deterioration of the Legal System

When most people think of laws today, they think of legislation passed by Congress. Yet, the primary source of law that governs society today developed from common law. In a common law legal system, laws are developed by judges through decisions of courts and similar tribunals, rather than by legislation. A majority of the rules of contract law, tort law, property law, and criminal law evolved from common law, while legislation served to simply codify decisions or fill in areas not covered by case law.

Ironman Athlete Collecting Worker's Compensation

A recent report out of Mesa, Arizona demonstrates the inevitable negative consequences of supposed problem-solving government programs. Audrey Glemba, a 49-year-old triathlon runner, became a medically-retired police officer collecting worker's compensation for an injury she claimed prevented her from working. Taxpayers in her city are now paying her $508 a month, in addition to medical retirement benefits.
