Oppose 9 % tax on Veterinarian Services and Meds
« on: February 04, 2009, 01:38:15 PM »
CA wants to legislate a 9% tax on all veterinary services,
            including meds.  This is really reprehensible at a time when so
            much is being done to heighten awareness regarding caring for
            animals.  Veterinarians, whose training and licensing is as
            rigorous as that of MDs will now have their care taxed as
            though they were dispensing canned goods, and the cost
            of surgeries, neutering, etc. is high-an additional 9% will
            discourage many from giving their pet care.

            To call Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to oppose this tax and
            make it known that balancing the budget at the expense of our
            pets' health is not acceptable!!!

            It only takes about 20 seconds because it's all automated.

            Call  916-445-2841.

            Press 1 for English.

            Press 5 for the veterinary tax proposal.

            It will ask you to press 1 if you're calling about the
            veterinary tax proposal, so press 1.

            Then press 2 to oppose the tax

            Please forward to others. Thanks.
