One of the first of the new taxes meant to pay for ObamaCare was the 10% “surcharge” on tanning sessions. Yes, if you want to get a sun tan, and don’t want to lay out in the sun, the salon must charge you an additional 10% that they forward on to the Federal Government.
Okay, fair enough, exposure to ultra-violet radiation can cause health problems. But, one has to stop and think, only fair-skinned people go tanning. Dark-skinned people do not.
Therefore, is Obama’s Tanning Salon Tax racist?
If you’re leaning to no, then imagine a tax that was only charged to people with dark skin. Would that be racist? How can one be racist, and the other not racist?
