How about if the same Congress that would tax cosmetic surgery (the wealthy will have been promised the usual deduction anyway) instead rid all of us of the biggest wrinkle in the system: the tax deduction.
Being bipartisan--Congress versus most of the rest of us--it would so please President Obama. And surely it wouldn't hurt for us to have access to the money that we long ago allocated for ourselves. We could use it to build a single-payer system of healthcare that would allow us to get on with the business of living.
