My Grannie, How Surprised You Look!

You Know What’d Be Fun? Let’s Tax Pelosi’s Botox to Fund Obamacare!

I with Jimmie on this one. Afterall, when you need to come up with a trillion dollars, it's best to put everything on the table.

The Senate Finance Committee has discussed imposing a 10 percent excise tax on cosmetic surgery deemed unnecessary for medical purposes. The idea was broached in a meeting with OMB Director Orszag in mid-July, after which Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus told reporters he had heard some “interesting,” “creative,” and “kind of fun” ideas.

According to the IRS, deductions for procedures such as reconstructive surgery due to cancer or laser eye surgery would be allowed. But nose jobs, liposuction, teeth-whitening procedures
and Botox injections to smooth wrinkles would be prohibited under Sec. 213 and subject to the new tax.

Emphasis mine. Panic Pelosi’s.

Maybe it is just me but the "panicked" look kinda of suits old Nancy. In fact, I'd like to see it a whole lot more often. Although, since the Congress doesn't feel it is necessary that they participate in the same health care plan that they are trying to saddle the rest of us with, would Nan's "treatments" even be affected?
