With the continuing decline in our economy, more and more resources will be needed from those being productive members of society. For example, I have to pay a $35/year fee to be licensed with the state, $108/year to a national organization for my Continuing Education (CE) credits, $35/year for Basic Life Support (BLS) certification, and various other small fees. All for the privilege of working.
The fees are manageable, but I expect to always see new ways to increase the government's cash flow because I have a job. I am all for certification in the health care field, but don't bleed my paycheck.
