With some states experiencing budget shortages, I came up with an idea of a new way to raise revenues while likely reducing the circ rate: tax circumcisions. Under my idea, it would be like a sales tax with the burden technically being on the doctor or hospital performing the circ but the cost of the tax will likely be passed on to the parents. This would likely reduce the circ rate since I figure most insurance plans wouldn't cover the tax and parents would have to pay it out of pocket, and for those who still choose to circ the state would be making money off of it. To avoid entering a subject we can't discuss here into the tax debate, the tax would apply only to cases where a profit is intended to be made from the circ. Circs done on a consenting individual or out of true medical necessity would also be exempt.
