[DML] Re: DCS'12

Bob, I don't think any of the fuel taxes goes to health care actually.  You have to remember that a lot of Europeans are taxed upwards of 50% (FIFTY) of their income to cover medical care and other things.  I spoke last week in Belgium and I think he said something like 13% of his paycheck went to healthcare!  Now that is insane for some...but while others smoke, drink and are in poor health and only work at McDonald's their whole life, they get a screaming deal.
