1997 Ron Paul 76:1
Mr. PAUL. Mr. Chairman, will the gentleman yield?

1997 Ron Paul 76:2
Mr. BEREUTER. I yield to the gentleman from Texas.

1997 Ron Paul 76:3
Mr. PAUL. Let me address the subject of regulation. The Constitution does give us the authority to regulate commerce, but it never mentions that we should subsidize special interests at the expense of the average American taxpayers. Yes, we can put on tariffs and we can regulate what comes and goes across our borders, but in the wildest dreams of the Founders of this country they never intended that we would have programs like this. We have to think this is a concoction of the latter part of the 20th century, the past 20 or 30 years. This is when this stuff; when welfare-ism has blossomed, it has been these type of programs. It was never intended by our Constitution to do these programs.
