Tiger Hawk highlights one of the more idiotic provisions of the Senate health care bill: a value-added tax on companies that develop new medical technology.
It is an obvious point, but one that constantly needs to be made: when you tax something, you get less of it. The U.S. leads the world in technological innovation, and the Democrats are preparing to bump us down a few notches. Ask yourselves, citizens – does this make sense? Furthermore, does electing economic illiterates who would propose such a law seem like a good idea? Remember how you answered those questions when 2010 rolls around.
