Who says health care is unaffordable – nip and tuck anyone?

They are in, they are out, did they go to the lips?

While we know Americans cannot afford health care and we certainly know that the problem is with insurance premiums, perhaps the real problem is priorities.  Human nature being what it is, we all like to spend money on things that make us happy and that extends to health care.  Well, certain health care in any case.  

There were almost 10 million surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures performed in the United States in 2009, as reported by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) for which Americans spent almost $10.5 billion.  And if you think these surgeries and procedures are confined to the rich and famous, you are wrong. On the other hand, the number of procedures did decline slightly in 2009, do we need a stimulas plan?  We have had them before so why not another boob tax credit?
