VIDEO: Pete Stark doesn't think there are many limits on what Congress can do

Leave it to eighteen term Democrat Congressman Pete Stark to pretty much encapsulate what's wrong with the federal government.  That being that we have too many members of Congress such as himself who don't recognize constitutional limits on the power of Congress.

In the following video Stark is confronted by a constituent who proceeds to take him to school on the Constitution and the fact that it does indeed limit Congress to specific delegated powers, leaving others to the state governments or to the people.

For his part, Stark was faced with a pretty hostile crowd and does a poor job defending his position.

Of course, this was the same member of Congress who caught flack for telling a constituent at a previous town hall meeting that he wouldn't even bother to urinate on them, (yes, really), so maybe he was just trying to be low key.  Regardless, his statements underscore just how far beyond recognition liberals have misconstrued and perverted our Constitution.
