by John Krill

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview

"Fedzilla vs. the Constitution" traces the largely successful effort to turn a federal government given limited, enumerated tasks by the Constitution into powerful behemoth. Issue by issue, the book shows how it was done, starting with the administration of George Washington and continuing through the Obama Administration.

Description

In 1788, the Constitution of the United States created a federal government of limited powers. Everyone agreed that any power not on the list of 18 "enumerated" powers was retained solely by the states or the people. Yet, today, federal bureaucrats decide what our children should eat for lunch at school, the kind of pajamas they wear, the type of bulbs we screw into lamps and more. Most importantly, Washington decides how much of the money we earn we deserve to keep and how much it believes it can put to better use. The Constitution has been turned upside down. The federal government has practically all the power and the states are left with only the occasional bones thrown to them from Washington. How did this happen? Fedzilla vs. the Constitution explains how a government given limited powers mutated into the behemoth it is today. Issue by issue, the book shows how it was done, starting with the administration of George Washington and continuing through the Obama Administration. "Fedzilla vs. The Constitution" explains why limited government at the federal level is still needed and is what the real Constitution requires.
