Oh Barry, now this is what I call change!
In the latest amendment to Obama’s health care bill, it will be tanning salons that are facing a 10% tax.
Originally put in place to tax plastic surgeons, called the bo-tax, (get it, botox/bo-tax) plastic surgeons came forward screaming unfairness towards women so the democratic who-evers quickly shifted the tax over to another industry, the tanning industry.
But why go after an industry that’s already took a hit due to the economic downturn? Tanning is probably something people who are in a money crunch would give up, right?
There’s a reason according to salon owner Dan Humiston, who tells the Denver Post;”Out of all industries you could chose, why the tanning industry? Because we’re so wealthy? Because we’re making so much money? From customers who pay $6 for a tan? No, it’s because we’re not going to fight back,”
Democratic organizers expect that this tax could raise about 3 billion over 10 years but c’mon son, those orange glows aren’t as popular as they used to be. There has got to be a better industry to go after.
Just remember, every time you tan your paying for someone lazy out there to go to the doctor.
go figure… something that won’t cost the blacks a dime.
This is abosoluty rediculous. I work for Ultimate Exposure tanning salons and i can not believe he is doing this. Just because you do not feel something is right does not mean you should tax it out til no return. I remember something called freedome of expression and speech. Just because it is not the same voice or way you choose to express yourself(because in all honesty you are a nigger does not mean to tax it out. People deserve to do what makes them feel good.
