Democracts backpedal on federal "BOTAX" to plug budget holes

Well, it appears that calmer heads (or at least calmer foreheads) are prevailing.

Yesterday it leaked that the Democratic caucus was considering taxing BOTOX & cosmetic surgery in their desperate search for revenue to provide a fig leaf of budget neutrality in the health care power grab. After much ridicule on the ludicrousness at the feasibility and effectiveness of it, they're backing off.

Presumably, house speaker Nancy Pelosi , she of frozen forehead, killed this :)
