I just got this notice from the American Dental Association
As part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the Internal Revenue Service is preparing to issue regulations implementing a 2.3-percent medical device tax, effective Jan. 1. The IRS has indicated that the forthcoming regulations will not include an exemption for dental devices, which the ADA and manufacturers requested.
The tax is a manufacturer's excise tax, so manufacturers and importers will be responsible for paying and reporting it. The proposed IRS rule appears to indicate that dental equipment, material and supplies purchased by a dentist for use in the office will be subject to the tax. It is also likely that dental prosthetics and dentures will not be taxed as products under the final rule, but that the materials that go into their manufacture will be.
Result: Fees for dental services will be going up by at least 2.3%.
As a conservative person (libertarian), I'm annoyed with liberals for thinking they know what's best for everyone. It seems mostly everything on the progressive agenda is based on you guys thinking you can run my life better than I can. Which transposes into you using the government to control others.
Here's the basic structure I see in your beliefs, followed by some examples:
The liberal mindset, as I have come to see it- *People cannot get their shit together without X government initiative*
-Poor people will be screwed without entitlements.
-The environment will be screwed without global warming initiatives.
-Only the rich would go to school without public education.
-Only the rich could afford healthcare without government involvement.
-Food companies would poison us without regulation.
-The economy would crumble without the wise government financial overlords to control the system.
-Black people couldn't "move on up" without civil rights/equality measures.
-People can't be responsible with guns, they should be illegal.
Liberals need to get two things into their shiny brains, in my opinion. ONE- It's not right for you to tell other peaceful people what to do, and even if you use the government, that still breaks down to you telling other peaceful people how to live their lives. You are no better than anyone else, especially a person who isn't causing harm to anyone. It's not your place, nor is it any humans place, to boss around peaceful people. and TWO- the government is not the answer to these problems anyway. All the government can do is use blunt force and theft. It has no means of solving these problems other than by forcing people to do what it says. That isn't a way to solve problems, that's a way to create new problems.
