This can't be what the Framers of the Constitution had in mind. When members of the Committee on Style were drafting the document in Philadelphia in the summer of 1787, they argued about the placement of commas and semi-colons. They wouldn't have done so had they envisioned a Congress that would have unlimited power to adopt any regulation covering anything.]] Quotes-end.png
