YOU TAX WHAT YOU DON'T WANT:

Married couples face extra tax in Senate health care bill (Stephen Dinan and David M. Dickson, 11/20/09, THE WASHINGTON TIMES)

Senate Democrats' health care bill would create a new marriage penalty by imposing a tax on individuals who make $200,000 annually but hitting married couples making just $50,000 more.

That's one of 17 new taxes imposed by the bill, which also creates a levy on elective plastic surgery - some call it "botax" - and places a 40 percent excise tax on those who have generous health care plans.
