Most Democrats despise the U.S. Constitution so it is not shocking that when asked that they can’t point to where the Constitution grants certain powers. Education Secretary Arne Duncan, a Harvard grad, is the latest Democrat stumped by a Constitution question.
Let me help Arne out…the Constitution does not authorize the federal government to be involved in education.
Washington (CNSNews.com) – U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan, a magna cum laude graduate of Harvard, could not say where the U.S. Constitution authorizes the federal government to be involved in primary and secondary education.
On Thursday, after a House subcommittee hearing, CNSNews.com asked Duncan, “The Bill of Rights says that powers not delegated to the federal government by the Constitution are reserved to the states and the people. With that in mind, Mr. Secretary, where specifically does the Constitution authorize the federal government to be involved in primary and secondary education?”
Nice way to duck the question Mr. Harvard grad. At least he didn’t do what Nancy Pelosi did and respond…”are you serious…are you serious?” Asking a Democrat about Constitutional authority is always fun and educational.
I didn’t go to Harvard but I do know that the Constitution does not grant the federal government the power to meddle in education. That is a state right, according to that pesky 10th amendment.
