Government Spending and Royalty; Closing Out Section 9 of Article 1

Let’s close out Section Nine and the limits it places on the Congress.

No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and Account of Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time.

You want money then Congress and the President have to authorize it by passing a law, and note in paperwork and tell us how much they used. They could do a better job with that last part.

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.

Another easy one. There will be no Kings, or Queens, etc. in America, though some politicians seem to think they are royalty.  And before any politician can be ‘knighted’ or awarded it requires Congressional Approval.

That closes that. Next up is Section 10, dealing with the State’s limitations under the Constitution.
