10. Public option?
I voted for Kucinich, if that helps you gauge my political leanings.

You are correct, though. Republican incompetence is no reason to do anything. I propose doing away with millage, fees, costs and everything else and basing taxes, fees and costs on the net worth of the person paying them. Sales tax, property tax, hunting license.

Far more fair, and would do away with all regressive costs to low income folks. Sounds consistent to me.
