Many thanks to Jen Fitz for reminding me of this. I read her comments and used the first line to launch off on my own.
Do you believe that mentally competent, grown women are capable of making their own purchases? I do. If you don't take all my income with taxes, I'll be able to do so very nicely, thank you.
I can also pick my own health insurance. (It's a shock I know, but try to bear up under it.)
I don't need the government to patronize me in the process. Oops, too late.
