9 Pages of the bill are dedicated to force chain restaurants to post all caloric information, even drive thru menus. Even though the research now shows that it has not changed eating habits. In New York, where the law is already in place, the caloric intake has actually gone up. Another words, people are going to make bad choices. The government cannot control that.
Vending machines will be included.
Veterinary students will also be eligeble for grants, scholarships, and loan forgivness. The addition of the veterinarians will come in at a cost of $283M for 4 years. I have no idea why we are paying for this. This is a complete waste of money. I will be more than happy to take that money. I can waste it much better than the government can.
Americans for Tax Reform have found at least 13 additional taxes included in the bill.
A 2.5% tax increase will be levied on all wholesalers of medical devices. Just remember, corporations do not pay taxes. They pass them onto consumers.
Tampons and Condoms are included as medical devices. Do they think that people who make less than $250K/year not use these?
All over the counter medications will no longer be eligible for Health Savings Account reimbursments. The only exeception will be insulin. This is going to affect the middle class more than anyone else. The poor more than likely don't have HSA's and the rich can afford it.
Pet supplies will be included as a medical expense. I love pets as much as the next person, but this is just silly.
So, you can get reimbursed for dog food, but not cough medicine for your kids. Gotta love those democrats.
