Ron Johnson on the Constitution, again

"The number one priority of federal government really is the national defense, protecting our system, our economic system."
Nice to see the arch-conservative Tea Party Senator from Wisconsin invoking the priority of the General Welfare Clause. But in fact the Constitution has nothing to say about any "economic system" at all.

h/t Robin Marohn (watch the entire clip).

Ron Johnson also thinks he has the power to nominate federal judges.
