According to the Weekly Standard: Congress is preparing to take action on a bipartisan proposal to raise taxes on flu vaccines. This is not a tax on the wealthy, but rather on a broad swath of Americans, or at least those who choose to be immunized against the flu.
Here is a link to the full article:
Sure, it's only 75 cents per dose. That isn't much, is it? No, that wouldn't be much if the taxation stopped there. Instead, Congress (both sides of the aisle) nibbles away at taxpayers' hard-earned money to raise revenue to support unconstitutional programs, like this one.
I know many insurance companies pay for flu shots now. Mine does, for one. But that doesn't make this tax sit any better. Businesses of all kinds are being nibbled away at, too, by excessive taxation. We are all forking over enough money already to the federal government. They need to live within their means instead of sticking their hands into the pockets of citizens and businesses every time they want to do something they don't have the money for already.
