Putting your best face forward for the holidays
Richmond Times-Dispatch    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The holidays are your favorite time of the year, but you can't tell it by looking at your face. Instead of looking as happy and as ready-to-party as you feel, you look tired and troubled.

The proposed 5 percent levy—dubbed the "Botax" after the antiwrinkle treatment product Botox—would raise an estimated $5.8 billion over 10 years.
