    Default Congress Prepares $100 Million Bipartisan Flu Tax

    Congress Prepares $100 Million Bipartisan Flu Tax

    Congress is preparing to take action on a bipartisan proposal to raise taxes on flu vaccines. This is not a tax on the wealthy, but rather on a broad swath of Americans, or at least those who choose to be immunized against the flu.

    So what ? The republicans are at it again.

    Now the bill has been reintroduced in the House (H.R. 475) by Republican Jim Gerlach, the same representative who sponsored the original bill.

    The purpose of this legislation is to make sure seasonal flu vaccines are subject to a 75¢ per dose tax imposed already on many vaccines by Section 4131 of the IRS code.

    On January 6th, I reported that legislation to add seasonal flu vaccines to the definition of taxable vaccines had been introduced in both houses of Congress. The House version was introduced in December, so it died in committee when the 112th Congress adjourned. However, an identical bill was introduced in the Sentate by Democrat Max Baucus in early January and passed by unanimous consent with no discussion. Now the bill has been reintroduced in the House (H.R. 475) by Republican Jim Gerlach, the same representative who sponsored the original bill.

    Democrat in name only.

    Baucus is a moderate Democratic member of the Senate, frequently breaking with his party on the issues of taxes, the environment, Health Care, and gun control.
    Baucus has a 74 percent pro-business voting record as rated by the United States Chamber of Commerce. He twice voted to make filing bankruptcy more difficult for debtors.
    Baucus has been criticized for his ties to the health insurance and pharmaceutical industries, and has been one of the largest beneficiaries in the Senate of campaign contributions from these industries.
    That's enough ... he might as well be a republican.

    Besides, the original bill died and the republicans resurrected it again.
