Pro-Choice Group Hits GOP On Health Care Tax Hypocrisy

Via the Hill’s Sam Baker: NARAL Pro-Choice America “sent letters this week to the 24 lawmakers who support a bill that would repeal the healthcare law’s tax on tanning salons.” The group points out that while the lawmakers decried the provision as an “unfair punishment of small businesses,” they voted for H.R. 3, legislation that increased taxes on businesses that provide abortion coverage. “We don’t have a position on the tanning tax,” said NARAL President Nancy Keenan in a statement. “But we are curious about how the same lawmakers who decry tax increases could be OK with supporting a bill that takes tax credits away from small businesses. We would hate for them to be unaware of this contradiction. As we all know, there’s nothing worse than a politician who says one thing and then does another.”
