Say What? The State Should Pay for Your Hearing Aid?

Nanny State Government on the March. A bill introduced by Sen. Tupac Hunter (D) on March 25, 2009, to authorize a refundable income tax credit for the full amount paid for the purchase of hearing aids has cleared committee and is on the Senate floor for a final vote. If passed, it would go to the House for consideration. Essentially, under this bill, the state would reimburse all hearing aid purchases with no limit or means-test threshold.
Get ready for similar bills requiring the state to pay for wheel chairs, canes, walkers, eyeglasses, contact lenses...who knows where it could all end?
