A Hidden State Tax Is Driving High Medical Insurance Costs | Chris Powell
Long ago, a Sunday episode of the “BC” newspaper comic strip depicted a caveman looking mischievously at a sleeping dinosaur behind a rock. The caveman ripped a thorn out of a bush, slithered up to the dinosaur, stuck the thorn into its foot, and dashed behind the rock. The dinosaur woke up in terrible pain and jumped to its other feet. Whereupon the caveman reappeared, calmed the dinosaur, and removed the thorn, earning the dinosaur’s eternal gratitude and devotion.
Another caveman, peering out from behind another rock, shouted, “Boy, you ready for politics.”
