Default Check your receipts when you buy something

This was posted on the blaze regarding a purchase at Cabela's. It is indicated as a Medical Excise Tax. Cabela's says it was a computer glitch.

As they're saying, the Medical Device Excise Tax was supposed to generate an additional $29 billion to help pay for Obamacare. The consumer pockets are getting hit as usual.

I would check your receipts!

I purchased a Parakeet from Petsmart. One of birds died the other day. The receipt does not have Medical Excise Tax.

Ammo leaves holes thus requiring a medical device (needle and thread) to repair which in turn constitutes the tax.
