Politically Speaking: Tenthers opposition to health reform

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

I should have been more up on this, after hearing much in recent weeks
on Randy Ray Renshaw's "Open Line" KSCJ 1360AM show. There is a
growing number of people who think it isn't constitutional for the
government to enact federal health reform, since it would violate the
10th Amendment. Renshaw has been hot on that topic, and now U.S. Sen.
Charles Grassley is saying there could be credence to that thought.
The 10th Amendment reads thusly: "The powers not delegated to the
United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States,
are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." Those to
the left of political center (like DailyKos) think this logic is off,
that it's more from people who were birthers (denying that Barack
Obama was born in the U.S., therefore unable to be president) becoming
"Tenthers."
