Michigan House Democrats raise taxes on doctors

Way to increase health care costs with taxes, dumbasses. It's time for us to call our state senators tomorrow morning. Valde will be getting a call on this.

Bad news from USA Today

The Democratic-led Michigan House has voted to put a 3 percent tax on doctors' gross receipts to raise more federal matching money for state-run health care programs.

The House voted 56-52 mostly along party lines Tuesday to send the proposal to the Republican-led Senate.

Doctors who see Medicaid patients would benefit from higher reimbursement rates generated by the tax. Doctors who treat few or no Medicaid patients would lose out.


I'm looking for the roll call for this vote. As soon as I find it, it'll be posted here. Same for all the other tax increases.
