Health care Reform tax would hit H1N1 vaccine manufacturers

Lets see.. Tax the business, the business puts those costs into their prices and the taxpayers who buy the H1N1! vaccine now pay more for those very drugs. Smart power!

In an attempt to illustrate the real world consequences of reform's taxes, Senate Republicans are pointing out a provision that would tax the makers of swine flu vaccines and drugs. The provision raises $2.3 billion annually from drug makers who sell their products through government programs.

“When everybody is coming together to fight a possible pandemic the last thing the government should be doing is taxing the people who manufacture the vaccines and the drugs to treat H1N1 flu,” said a Senate Republican leadership aide.
