Expressing what appears to be a widespread delusion among America's elected representatives, GOP Congressman Tim Walberg of Michigan repeatedly claimed in a discussion last week that Congress can do whatever it wants provided there are enough votes to pass it. Despite taking an oath to the U.S. Constitution, which places strict limits on the power of both Congress and the federal government, the Republican lawmaker sounded largely unfamiliar with those restraints. And unfortunately for the American people, Walberg is actually among the more Constitution-friendly lawmakers in a Congress that has been lawlessly running wild for decades now.

On Wednesday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a pro-life measure supporting conscience protections for doctors and healthcare providers by a vote of 245 to 182. The measure would allow churches and other entities to sue the federal government for violating the Weldon Amendment, which prevents states from discriminating against institutions or health entities that do not provide for or refer abortions.
