A postscript on that sacerdotal thing....

While we're at it, pushing for that pilot single payer program to be tested out on state and municipal government employees,  let's emphasize one point.

Charlie and the rest, make sure, if you would, that the first thing you do is institute the 7.5% tax on earnings for the guinea pigs in this experiment, and do it by withholding, to ease the pain.

And while you're at it, take a hint from your mentors working on federal health care legislation.  Start collecting the tax well before you provide any benefits via the program, just to make your constituents even happier.

There's no need to thank me for the suggestion; I'm offering it as a "public service."
