On the other hand, required for what? It's not yet been established that the government needs all the revenue it's collecting now.

Of course the government needs the revenue. For what, you ask? Well, when DW joins me on Medicare next year and we are both paying less than half of the premiums we've been paying privately, and with much lower copays and deductibles, we'll be able to afford a European trip each year with the savings. So pony up, taxpayers.
