    Cabela's blowing the whistle

    The 2.3% Medical Excise Tax that began on January 1st is supposed to be “hidden” from the consumer, but it's been brought to the public’s attention by hunting and fishing store Cabela’s who have refused to hide it and are showing it as a separate line item tax on their receipts.

    If every tax that was put on the consumer, was like this, the receipt would be 5 feet long.

    Called a Vat Tax in the EU. Although I personally do not see anything that is 'Value Added' by it.

    True. Welcome to 'transparency' and 'openness'.

    This actually isn't true: snopes.com: Medical Device Excise Tax

    As it turns out, Cabela's mistakenly applied it to their sales in January. The tax is supposed to be only on medical equipment.

    It is a software glitch at Cabelas. This tax is only supposed to be charged for purchases of "medical devices". Cabela's didn't "blow the whistle".

    And straight from the horses mouth:

    It is amazing how these rumors blow around the internet at light speed. A little critical thought is needed.

    Now the government gets to decide what is a "medical device."

    Let see, medical device is:
    1) Food. Without it, you couldn't live, which is a medical problem
    2) Water. Same as above. You are protecting your life and well being with them, so that's medical.
    3) Shoes. Without proper footware, it would lead to a medical problem.
    4) Clothes. Protect you from UV sun rays.
    5) Beer, wine, liquor, cigarettes. These all cause medical problems, therefore, they are devices that result in medical care.
    6) Cars and Gasoline. These get you to the doctor and hospital, which provide medical care.
    .

    You see where this is going?
    Know Guns, Know Safety, Know Peace.
    No Guns, No Safety, No Peace.

    But I read it on the internet--and they can't put anything on the internet that isn't true! Just ask that blond who is dating the French model!
