What are you talking about? How is this any different than any other vice tax? Hint: it's not. It actually makes complete sense, and is a good idea.

As long as they lessen the burden on normal people then this tax on the elitists is fine by me.

These fools are reaching so hard now that it is obvious they know we can't afford their ridiculous plan. Good thing some of the fiscally responsible Dems are willing to stand up to them rather than just being rubber stampers like the rest.

I'm looking forward to the death of Congress as it functions today.

She'll be able to afford it, it'll be the rest of us that can't (if we want it). She's going to get her's no matter what.

No more taxes!!!-- Period. If they want to open new revenue sources, they should start taxing the churches like businesses and tax their land too. that would contribute a great deal to the healthcare plan. i'm sure that the "benevolent" churches wouldn't mind it either.

I think taxing plastic surgery is a good idea. It's a luxury, so if yuo can afford to spend it on that, than you can pay a little extra for important things. Then they can leave us people who are already struggling alone!
