Death, Taxes and Health Care

As if the new and improved ObamneyCare© taxes weren't enough, the Feds are calling for new taxes on ... wait for it ... health care:

"A report Tuesday from the Institute of Medicine says the U.S. health system has a "fixation" on clinical care, or treating people when they get sick, rather than preventing them from getting ill in the first place."

Yeah, it's funny how that works out, isn't it?

So it seems pretty simple to dodge this tax: just don't get hurt or sick.

Seems fair.

UPDATE: More here (Thanks Bob!)

Key quote:

"It may sound counterintuitive, but a panel of experts ... has concluded that the best way to slow the nation's breakneck spending on medical care is to impose a tax on every health care transaction."

Yup, that'd do it.
