Milking the Feds?

Should breast pumps be tax deductible?   The IRS announced that breast pumps would be tax deductible, alongside such medical “flex” expenditures like contact solution and bandages.  Now two Mommy Michelles – Obama and Bachmann – are coming down on two different sides of the issue.   Michelle Obama wants to promote breastfeeding  in the African American community, where according to Obama, 40% of women don’t currently breastfeed.   Michelle Bachmann says she doesn’t take issue with breastfeeding – only with the federal government providing tax incentives to promote it.
