Yet most of the ‘‘problems’’ Congress spends most of its time addressing—from health care to day care to retirement security to economic competition—are simply the personal and economic problems of life that individuals, families, and firms, 23 82978$$CH3 12-08-04 07:29:49 CATO HANDBOOK ON POLICY not governments, should be addressing. What is more, as a basic point of constitutional doctrine, under a constitution like ours, interpreted as ours was meant to be interpreted, there is little authority for government at any level to address such problems.
Its purpose was to encourage constitutional debate in Congress and the nation and, in time, to restore constitutional government. Unfortunately, the caucus has been moribund since then. It needs to be revived— along with the spirit of the 104th Congress—and its work needs to be expanded. The caucus was created in response to the belief that the nation had strayed very far from its constitutional roots and that Congress, absent leadership from elsewhere in government, should begin addressing the problem.
In essence, the climate of opinion must be such that a sufficiently large portion of the American public stands behind the changes that are undertaken. When enough people come forward to ask—indeed, to demand—that government limit itself to the powers it is given in the Constitution, thereby freeing individuals, families, and communities to solve their own problems, we will know we are on the right track. Fortunately, a change in the climate of opinion on such basic questions has been under way for some time now.
