We had our annual benefits meeting today at work and after hearing about all the various health care options and tax ramifications, I left with a headache. I told our own after the meeting: “I have never been more convinced of the need for a flat tax or decoupling health care from employment than I am right now.” Turns out both of those are interests of his. (I knew about his position on health care, but the flat tax was new.)
Our current health care and tax structures are insane. We need to start over on both. Let people decide what’s best for themselves rather than continually carving new rules at the ferderal level. Set my people free!
