But where the line between federal and state power lies has been debated for centuries, including recent debates over gay marriage, gun rights and abortion.  We’ll take stock of the Tenth Amendment, and the implications for policy that flow from it.

The Government Vs. Obesity (Rebroadcast)

Mayor Bloomberg’s attempt to ban super-sized sugary drinks in New York City was thwarted by a judge recently, but he plans to appeal. Its brought up the question, once again, of how much of a role should government play in the fight against obesity. Supporters of this approach say it's such a serious problem that government needs to get involved, but others say these efforts amount to a nanny state and that personal responsibility is the best approach.

And dodge ball gets a second chance in one New Hampshire school district.  We'll look at the big New Hampshire stories of the week of June 17th.
