So I ask you again, what (and who) exactly would you need all the extra payflex for?
Who said anything about payflex? Efficiency and intelligence aren't "payflex" and frankly shouldn't be dismissed as pejoratives.
So I ask you again, when did paying more than is necessary become a sign of a well run franchise?
