Are you a Geico Policy Holder? Email them

This is my email:

We have been policy holders of Geico for both our vehicles for quite some time. Imagine our surprise when we hear that Geico pulled it's ads from The Glenn Beck Show because of Van Jones and his Color of Change group. That is a racist group if ever I saw one. You seriously need to re-examine this position. This is going on our blog which could cost you more customers.

In 1794, Congress appropriated $15,000 for relief of French refugees who fled from insurrection in San Domingo to Baltimore and Philadelphia, James Madison stood on the floor of the House to object, "I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents."

Constitutional limits on federal power are explained by James Madison in Federalist Paper No. 45: "The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined... be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce."

Thomas Jefferson wrote in a letter to Pennsylvania Representative Albert Gallatin, "Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare, but only those specifically enumerated. Whensoever the General Federal Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force."

In a speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, James Madison said, "The powers of the federal government are enumerated; it can only operate in certain cases; it has legislative powers on defined and limited objects, beyond which it cannot extend its jurisdiction".

So why would healthcare even be an issue?
