Lawmakers Look to Tax Cosmetic Surgery

When is the public gonna start opposing the government's constant thirst for more and more of their money? As detailed here, states are looking to fund their socialist schemes by taxing elective surgeries.

Seattle surgeon Dr. Phil Haeck noted that 86 percent of cosmetic surgery patients are women.

"This is an unfair tax on women," said Haeck, editor of Plastic Surgery News. "The bulk of the people who have procedures are not financially upper-class women. They've saved hard, and this is about restoring their self-esteem."

Of course, this will punish those who support Big Government the most thru their consistant voting for Democrats. Ironic, no?
