The takeover of the car industry, automakers and health care will pale in comparison to this one:
Removing the word “navigable” from the Clean Water Act when limiting federal jurisdiction. Expands the meaning of the meaning of the Clean Water Act and making the Commerce Clause of the Constitution totally meaningless.
This could be an even larger threat to private property and federalism than the EPA’s decision to classify carbon dioxide as a pollutant. The original act specified “navigable” waters as the definition of the limitation for the Interstate Commerce Clause, a reasonable if somewhat still wide parameter. Eliminating that condition would put any body of water, no matter how small, under the authority of Washington — as well as the lands adjacent to it.
Bad, bad news.
