Dingell is my rep in Congress. Can you believe it? One of the worst imaginable. A true penance. He is being opposed by an upright man, Jack Lynch. JL ran against Dingell last time, as a total unknown, and he still pulled 1/3 of the vote. JL is a strong Catholic, goes to Christ the King, I think.

Your objections to the health reform legislation that have to do with subsidiarity presume that a less centralized system could perform the task equally well.

But it seems to me that whenever you have a service that must be performed regardless of the recipient's ability to pay -- be it an emergency-room doctor treating a heart attack, a firefighter putting out a house fire, or a police officer responding to a burglary -- then the service provider is going to get stiffed unless everyone is required to pitch in, either by mandatory private participation (e.g. insurance) or mandatory public participation (e.g. taxes).

So I guess I'm wondering ... are you opposed to any sort of mandatory pay-in -- or do you simply think that the principle of subsidiarity should point us to have a mandatory pay-in at a lower level of government (e.g. state)?

If Dingell had been at the Constitutional Convention he would have favored an American Monarchy. He, and his fellow democrat travelers, think they have created one ex post facto. He is sadly mistaken and Ed's new rep, come the next election, will be, God willing, Jack Lynch.

"The task." That is something that very few spoke very little about during this debate over control of the "system" but it will become the most important issue of all as time goes on. In fact, if it had been thoroughly discussed as a priori to this debate over control, the outcome may well have been different.
