At this point, 43 people have responded to our poll since it was posted. Thank you for participating! Nearly 50 percent of the respondents agreed that a tax on cosmetic surgery would be discriminatory.
Written responses in the “other” category said the following:
- “Will negatively impact the industry.”
- “Largely a tax on the middle class. Nixes Obama’s pledge not to raise our taxes.”
- “A fair tax to pay for an elective “luxury” procedure.”
The fact that most respondents sided with the discrimination argument shouldn’t be too surprising, as it’s easily the most controversial aspect of this issue; wouldn’t you agree?
Feel free to comment or post more responses in the poll.
