Why Is Republican Steve King Trying to Nationalize Tort Law?

Does Not Belong in D.C.

Many Republicans all around the nation have long been champions of tort reform.  Republicans in states like Texas have enacted it – and achieved the results its proponents promised.

Whether or not you favor tort reform of any sort – we should all recognize that it is not a federal government issue.  Republicans especially – conservatives even more so – should understand the complete lack of any Constitutional imperative to have the federal government address tort reform.

Since the Constitution does not expressly empower The Feds on tort reform – the Ninth and Tenth Amendments mandate that it not be addressed by The Feds.

Iowa Republican Congressman Steve King is a stalwart conservative, and a champion on many important federal issues.  Tort reform shouldn’t be one of them.  His tort reform bill – H.R. 1215: Protecting Access to Care Act of 2017 – can be in all fifty statehouses, should you favor tort reform.

Per the Constitution – it does not belong in the United States Congress.

The Road to Hell is Paved with Regulations. And Taxes. Take Note, New York

We are nigh all familiar with the maxim: “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.”

I also like it in its original form – in the original French: “The saying is thought to have originated with Saint Bernard of Clairvaux who wrote (c. 1150), ‘L’enfer est plein de bonnes volontés ou désirs.’ ‘Hell is full of good wishes or desires.’”

Because it shows that not only do good intentions lay your road to Hell – they ensure you get there. Where you and your intentions can plot and plan for all eternity.

And nigh everyone gets this – save for Leftists. And unfortunately for the rest of us, their attempts at good intentions – via government – drag all of us down to Hell right along with them.

Which is ironic. Because what Utopian Leftists are attempting – is to create a Heaven on Earth. Oops.

Good intentions lead to Hell – because this ain’t Heaven. And here on Earth, Reality always, inexorably inserts itself – and disrupts and destroys even the best of intentions.

Exhibit A: New York state.

“‘The state’s Public Service Commission (PSC) earlier Monday passed a new set of standards that by 2030 is supposed to ensure that half of New York’s energy needs are met by renewable methods, ranging from solar and wind, as well as hydro and nuclear power.’” More
