Founding Father Quote of the Day

“But as the plan of the [constitutional] convention aims only at a partial union or consolidation, the State governments would clearly retain all the rights of sovereignty which they before had, and which were not, by that act, EXCLUSIVELY delegated to the United States”

—- Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 32, January 3, 1788

Can someone show me in the Constitution where it says that the Federal Government can take over industry, regulate CEO salaries, take over the Health Insurance Industry, and handicap the economy in the name of the “environment”? I don’t remember a clause for the Federalization of elementary education standards or for Federal regulation of transportation.
