the irs fails

December 10, 2010 § Leave a comment

An article in The New York Times reports that the IRS “has ruled that breast-feeding does not have enough health benefits to qualify as a form of medical care,” and therefore breast pumps and other breastfeeding supplies do not qualify for tax-sheltered health care accounts.  “I.R.S. officials say they consider breast milk a food that can promote good health, the same way that eating citrus fruit can prevent scurvy.”

You can sign a petition at MomsRising.org to urge the IRS to reverse this unfortunate decision.
