Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Pelosi Backing Away from Public Option

Pelosi is backing away from the "public option", yet her office claims the opposite. Yet, there will be a "trigger" embedded in the bill. This trigger will be pegged to what costs of. The "trigger" will implement a government, single payer plan that will in a very short time eliminate private health insurance.

This is the alternative that the far left in the US House has come up with in order to save face for their base. However, the most important aspect of this, is how high, or low, the "trigger" is set.

The only way to make health insurance reform work is to institute tort reform. Eliminate the limit to single states for plans. Make the insurance industry work within the system, not by coercion of the government.
