Obamacare Taxes Your Pets

Posted on March 13, 2013. Filed under: Obamacare, Politics | Tags: |

The next time you take your pet in to see the vet, you may be in for a case of sticker shock.

Obamacare is going to raise the price of your vet visits, too.

It’s because of the medical device tax.

Medical devices used only on animals are exempt. However, items including IV pumps, sterile scalpels and anesthesia equipment, which are medical devices that have a dual use, meaning they can be used on people and animals, will be taxed.

Huh. Didn’t see that one coming, did you?

Congressional sources who worked on the Affordable Care Act said lawmakers tried to exclude vets from being affected by the dual use medical devices tax, but it was too complicated.

Wahhhhhh! It was too hard, so we decided to screw the vets and pet owners! I’m not qualified to do this job!

In addition, the Economic Policy Journal is reporting that revenues from Obamacare are going to be double the original estimates.

But your taxes aren’t going to go up. Not one single dime.

Maybe a few quarters or dollar bills, but not one single dime!

Have you had enough of being lied to yet?
