More federal government overreach?

Yet again we see a bill proposed in DC, which in of itself seems quite a logical bill to enact. After all, who is not against young girls on college campuses (campii?) being subjected to sexual assaults?
But if you look at it Constitutionally, this is not something that is the purview of the federal government. And if not a federal topic then it must be an issue that should be addressed by the states.
So before you lefties get your knickers in a twist and accuse me of supporting the thugs on campus who attack girls, read the above carefully and note that all I ask for is that the correct part of our government looks after these problems.

If we had more people in DC reviewing bills for their correct Constitutionality, instead of for their own aggrandizement, a lot of this federal overreach would never have occurred. And talking about aggrandizement, look at the legislators in this piece. Do you really think they are saying "look at this good legislation"? I think they are saying "look at what WE did to protect these poor young girls". An excellent showcase of why DC is such a mess.
