First, Rep. Nancy “are you serious?” Pelosi and Sen. Pat “of course we have the authority!” Leahy were asked the question, and they didn’t care if aspects of Obamacare were constitutional or not, and obviously the White House doesn’t care either:

White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs said today that he does not know if White House lawyers have reviewed whether it is constitutional for the federal government to order individuals to buy health insurance and said that the White House is not seriously considering the concerns of people such as Sen. Orrin Hatch (R.-Utah) who believe the mandate is not constitutionally justified.

Questioning Congressional liberals or anybody in the Obama administration about the constitutionality of their proposals is like asking great white sharks if they’re violating the rights of seals by devouring them — they don’t care and they don’t think there’s anything you can do about it anyway.

Slightly off topic: On Halloween, Robert Gibbs made a terrific “don’t ask, don’t tell” Darth Vader.
