    I'm off to work and haven't had time to look it up, but does anyone have information on what is being refered to as the "Cracker Tax". It's a ten percent tax on tanning bed use. Isn't passing a tax that affects one race disproportionally ( whether intentional or not ) illegal?

    Heh ... I didn't think about it that way.

    I don't know the law at all but I suppose a pretty good argument can be made that the tax is unfair.

    The tax is real and went into affect the minute the bill was signed into law. It is not "disproportianate" as anyone who uses a tanning bed will pay the tax...it is not just for those that are of one race. The fact that only one race may opt to use the tanning bed is not a factor....all have the right to use one....so all are subject to the tax.

    I don't know why crackers go to tanning beds,, sunshine is free! for the moment that is. I'm sure though they will find a way to monitor your use of sunshine and tax you accordingly.

    They should be taxed.

    No true redneck would go to a tanning salon.

    I hate fake rednecks.

    You know, I kinda view this as a douchebag tax more than anything.

    In Pittsburgh, it's free sixty days out of the year. The other 305 days are at least overcast or, more usually, outright rainy.
