It would appear that we are stuck with some form of no copay health care and the need to fund it, and so I propose two new taxes to help, taxes unique in that they do not rob the productive sector. In the spirit of the scriptures ["Vengeance is Mine,says the Lord"] , tax medical malpractice punitive damages at 98% and apply that completely to medical costs.
Cap and Trade creates a market that was not there before, in the right to operate energy consuming business. It is the marketing of that government created permission, yet with the broker profit going to private industry. In deference to Single Pay as an operational pattern, go to Single Broker and have the government be that single broker, taxing the hogs and rewarding the abstemious; and of course skimming the profit.
