Shortly before a feeding tube was to be removed from a brain-damaged Florida woman, U.S. lawmakers on Friday called on Terri Schiavo to appear before congressional committees in an attempt to keep her alive.I am trying to figure out under what constitutional authority these so-called conservatives are acting. I tend to agree with Mr. Schiavo's attorney in characterizing this action as one reeking of Soviet-style totalitarianism, not American federalism. It seems that the Republicans are much more interested in power than conservative principles such as federalism and small government.

Color me Boggled.
According to this article, Congressional conservatives have called Terri Schiavo as a witness. You remember Terri Schiavo, right? She's the Florida woman who has been in what court-appointed doctors term a "persistent vegetative state" for the past decade and a half.
