What does the 10th Amendment mean to you?


The Tenth Amendment to the U. S. Constitution reads as follows:

“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. “

So … what does this mean to you?  Do you share the sentiments of the GOP lawmakers who  launched a task force on Thursday that seeks to reclaim the powers they say the federal government has unconstitutionally taken away from the 50 states?  (see article at http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/05/06/republican-lawmakers-launch-government-reform-task-force/

“We’ve trampled on the 10th Amendment many times and we will monitor pending legislation to try to stop that,” said Rep. Randy Neugebauer, R-Texas, another co-founding member.

Or do you perhaps feel that we cannot trust the States to do the things necessary for society?

As a “Michigander”, what are your thoughts about the impact of Federal legislation such as health care on Michigan?
