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...

ObamaCare To Cost More Than Expected

As expected, they projections on the cost of the government's seizure of health care are already rising.  Today the Congressional Budget Office announced that ObamaCare will cost at least $115,000,000,000.00 more than Congress and Barack Obama promised before it was passed on a straight party line vote.  For the first time in our history, a massive entitlement program has been enacted without ANY bipartisan support.

Now, the cost of this huge program is going to be at least 12% higher than the $850,000,000,000.00 cost that was promised by a lying Democratic Congressional leadership.  The CBO says that it will be nearer to $1,000,000,000,000.00... that's a staggering sum. 
The additional spending...would bring the total estimated cost of the overhaul to over $1 trillion.

We can't afford that now, what will the real cost be in 10 years...after all, Medicare was projected to cap in the late 1990's at $40 billion dollars...the real cost is 10 times that at $400 billion dollars per year.  If the projected costs are going to be 12% higher now, six weeks after passage...what does that say for the real dollar amount we will be forced to pay?  ABC is reporting that,
The revised figure is due to estimated costs to federal agencies to implement the new health care reform bill – such as administrative expenses for the Internal Revenue Services and the Department of Health and Human Services -- and the costs for a "variety of grant and other program spending for which specified funding levels for one or more years are provided in the act."
The time has come to vote ALL INCUMBENTS OUT, regardless of party.  These idiots have spent our treasure wastefully and have refused to secure the borders of this country.  It's time for a change...
