Rep. Steve King Says Affordable Care Act Is Unconstitutional Because Of Babies In Trash Cans
Testifying that the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional before an emergency Rules Committee meeting on the GOP's repeal bill this morning, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) offered a very specific argument. "There've always been," King said, "babies that were born, lived, and died within the jurisdictions of the individual states, who never cross a state line, access no health care, and therefore do not impact interstate commerce."
When Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) challenged King to "find the baby that was not born at a hospital or with a midwife, who did not receive inoculations," King upped the ante. "I hate to tell you, but they show up in garbage cans around this country, sir." Watch:
