    It’s Time to Tax Whitey–

    Dems impose a 10% surcharge on the use of ultraviolet indoor tanning beds. White folks feel burned.

    The Washington Post reported:
    washingtonpost.com

    The sun hasn’t exactly set on Solar Planet, but anxiety over the fate of the Arlington tanning salon has been running high ever since a “tan tax” took effect Thursday.

    One of the less publicized measures in the new health-care law, the tax imposes a 10 percent surcharge on the use of ultraviolet indoor tanning beds.

    Supporters — including the Obama administration, congressional Democrats and dermatologists — have argued that the tax will raise an estimated $2.7 billion toward the cost of expanding health coverage to the uninsured, while discouraging a practice that increases the risk of skin cancer by as much as threefold in frequent users, according to scientific research.

    Obama obviously hates white people. I mean it is our GOD given right to be able to tan freely without government interfering with our ability to fry our skin, it is what our founding father fought for!!

    A Samoan family member of mine works at, and is a slave to, the Tanning Salon. Hint: Samoans are already dark so it isn't just a "white people tax".

    I should probably get her opinion on this and post it eh?

    Yes. Civil Liberties also include the right to make yer' own faulty decisions. The problem comes when people don't want to accept personal responsibility for their own faulty decisions.

    An example being when professional tanners sue the tanning salon for the cancer they get.

    My father-in-law (HUGE Republican) wants to know why this law isn't considered racist, since it targets only certain people....

    Because it targets a behaviour, not a people.

    Really? When was the last time you saw a black person getting a tan in a tanning bed?
