Not from me, from a constituent of hers. I’ve posted something of his once before. It was forwarded to me by my good friend CB, via e-mail. Seth REALLY needs to start blogging.
Dear Ms. Boxer:
Thank you for today’s email advising me that 20% of my income is too much for me to spend on health care. Thanks also for letting me know that similarly situated citizens of other advanced nations spend no more than 10% of their income on health care.
I value your expertise. If you would, therefore, please let me know how much I should spend on other lines of my budget. In particular, what percentage of my income should I spend on:
1. Veterinary care;
2. Gifts for relatives;
4. Food to be cooked at home;
5. Food eaten at restaurants;
6. Computers, software, and internet-service-providers;
8. Furniture; and
If you would, please let me know how many hours I should exercise each week and what television programs I should watch.
Finally, if you have the time, please come to my home and advise what color I should paint the interior. And, if you would, please wash my dishes.
