Lesser Known Feature of the Health Care Debate

We have all heard about the debates regarding various features of the health care legislation that has monopolized the news during the last several months. However, did you know that the 5% tax on plastic surgery was removed, but a 10% tax on tanning salons was added. Take a guess as to who might have a stronger lobbying group, plastic surgeons or tanning salon owners.

Just another example of government arbitrarily (if being paid off is arbitrary) determining winners and losers.
