Tummy Tuck Tax

Treasury Department economic advisor Gene Sperling suggested, and the Senate Finance Committee staff has discussed, funding health care “reform” by imposing an excise tax on “medically unnecessary” cosmetic surgery.

Tummy Tuck Tax 
By Asher Embry

If Eugene Sperling has his way
We’d better get botoxed today.
For soon enough we could be taxed
When lipo’d or bikini waxed.
And if our tummy’s tucked away
Our government will make us pay.

Our snout, which we had hoped to fix,
Is now ensnared in politics.
Does our planned rhino surgery
Repair an abnormality;
Or is it just a luxury
For which we’ll owe the Treasury?

Just don’t be shocked if our tongues wag
When V.P. Biden starts to sag.
