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...

American Health Care Statistic: Pre ObamaCare

Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:

U.S. 65%
England 46%
Canada 42%

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:
U.S. 93%
England 15%
Canada 43%

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:
U.S. 90%
England 15%
Canada 43%

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:
U.S. 77%
England 40%
Canada 43%

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people
U.S. 71
England 14
Canada 18
(These are the actual numbers of machines available for use, per 1 million people-population)

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in “excellent health”:
U.S. 12%
England 2%
Canada 6%

If ObamaCare isn't repealed, withing 10 years, we'll reach parity with Canada, and within 20, parity with the UK...really rather sad.  After all, the new head of Medicare is a great fan of the UK health care system.  So much so, that he wants to institute health care rationing here in the US.  But then, we'll see that any way  with ObamaCare.  After all, 57% of all health insurance plans DON'T meet the miminum guidelines of ObamaCare to remain outside of the governmentally mandate  plans pools.  So much for keeping your health insurance if you like it.
