American families won’t be the only ones pelted with new Obamacare tax hikes, so will their pets.
Under Obamacare medical costs will also go up on pets.
Heritage reported:

According to a rule published Friday by the Internal Revenue Service, some medical devices used in veterinary practices will be hit by Obamacare’s 2.3 percent device tax. Many of their manufacturers are expected to hike prices, meaning higher veterinary costs for the nation’s pet owners.

The tax will not hit devices that are used exclusively for veterinary purposes. But a host of such devices are manufactured for use in both human health care and veterinary practices. Those devices’ manufacturers will have to pay the tax.

The IRS rule states:

Section 4191 [of the Internal Revenue Code] limits the definition of a taxable medical device to devices described in section 201(h) of the [Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act] that are intended for humans, but does not provide that the device must be intended exclusively for humans. Under existing [Food and Drug Administration] regulations, a device intended for use exclusively in veterinary medicine is not required to be listed as a device with the FDA, whereas a device intended for use in human medicine is required to be listed as a device with the FDA even if the device may also be used in veterinary medicine.

  2. Muslims don’t like dogs. They are “unclean”.

  3. Animals get “health care”? That’s too much for me. No thanks. Pets are not people.

    No, a lot of the equipment vets use to diagnose/treat problems with animals is manufactured by companies that make equipment for use with people. Since ObamaTax raises taxes on medical equipment care for pets will go up. It is right there in the first paragraph of the quoted article. This is just yet another unintended side effect that Leftist boneheads NEVER consider can and do happen. The IRS is just broadening its reach, extending unconstitutional governmental power at the expense of freedom and liberty.

    But I wouldn’t be surprised that animals will be covered eventually, many Progs think animals have rights. It sure would be a wet dream for PETA.

  5. Dogs are a lot smarter than most people, don’t believe me just look at who is president and his administration,congress & senate as well as half the voters in the U.S.
    As far as I’m concerned I would pay for my own dog’s medical needs before any of these people, good luck Peggy…..

    Of course animals get healthcare! You must have never had a dog or cat.

    The people who are blessed to have them will simply have to pay more for their care. NOT YOU!

  7. We had a dog and cat when I was a kid. NEVER AGAIN in my house. Blech.
