Is there something wrong with the Administration’s Constitutional vision? Ilya Shapiro thinks so. In the Wall Street Journal, he highlights three recent Supreme Court decisions holding government within the limits of the Constitution. What surprised me is that two of the decisions were unanimous.

From the piece:

As the world awaits the Supreme Court’s ruling on ObamaCare, there’s a larger story that the pundits are missing: the court’s rejection of the Obama administration’s increasingly extreme claims on behalf of unlimited federal power.

This term alone, the high court has ruled unanimously against the government on religious liberty, criminal procedure and property rights. When the administration can’t get even a single one of the liberal justices to agree with it in these unrelated areas of the law, that’s a sign there’s something wrong with its constitutional vision.

I couldn’t agree more with Luigi Zingales’ observation, also in the Wall Street Journal, that increasingly the most talented aren’t getting ahead in the U.S. due to early stage crony cancerism.
