Over the last century the United States, on a federal level, has moved away from the original interpretations of the United States Constitution in legislation and judicial review. This presentation will highlight the comments of authors of the United States Constitution as to the powers of the Federal Government and the abilities afforded to it to in order to maintain the republic. I will highlight cases specifically from the New Deal Era, and a more modern example, McDonnel v. United States. I will compare the language of the court opinions, briefs, and sponsors to those of the authors of the Constitution.
