The U.S. Senate's youngest member, elected with the backing of the Tea Party in Utah, adapted a popular left-leaning slogan from the seventies (and Benjamin Franklin) to urge citizens to question all branches of government about the extent of their authority. In a speech last week at The Federalist Society's annual National Lawyers Convention in Washington, Sen. Mike Lee said that asking members of the branches where they get their power will help restore limitations on authority. Lee, who was a law clerk for Justice Samuel Alito, singled out the health care legislation for particular criticism. The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday announced its intention to hear the case challenging the constitutionality of the health care legislation this term.
