Taxation With Possible Perspiration to Begin Today


The "White Person" Tax officially went into effect today, courtesy of the Barack Hussein Obama administration and the Democratically controlled Congress.

In their efforts to redistribute wealth from the rich folk to the poor folk, Liberal Progressives added a special tax into the "Health Care Reform" bill that seems (to this humble correspondent) specifically aimed at white people who have expendable income.

Effective today, a ten percent federal tax has been added to all indoor tanning visits. According to MyFoxPhoenix.com, the tax on all indoor tanning is supposed to generate $2.7 billion dollars by 2019 - to help pay for the health care upheaval.

Politico.com is encouraging tanners to carry an, "Obama Tax Hike Exemption Card" the next time they hit the salon for a tan, with the promise phrase of, "No family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase," emblazoned on the front along with a signature from the President.

It is being reported that Washington went after indoor tanning businesses because some studies show indoor tanning is unhealthy and in some cases can lead to cancer.

White People Tax. Interesting angle. And completely unfair.

Do people still tan as much as they used to?

What happens to the people who have to tan because of medical reasons (psoriasis for example)?

Good Luck John with the blog!

Hi Opus -

I assume that when you say "completely unfair," you're describing the tax, and not my perspective of it?

Because I do believe it is unfair. While I kinda jumped on a hyperbolic bandwagon in calling this tax racist, it certainly is aimed at people who are likely to have more disposable income - therefore the "rich," as the case may be, and since it's part of the "health care" bill, we know it's about redistribution.

I just think it's also aimed at White people because by percentage, how many Black people probably use tanning booths?

I don't know how many people tan, although the story I linked to my local Fox affiliate said that people here (PHX) use beds in the summer 'cause it's so darned hot here it's tough to tan outside.

I don't tan much like I did when I was younger - I guess I'm a crabby old bastard now. Heh.

Hey Odie -

No, you hit the right page - she was scheduled for you but I paid her overtime for an extra session. If she doesn't arrive shortly... well, I can't really say, but it's all legal and it's a lot of fun!

Steve -

Thanks for the complimentary comment.

Looks like you've been doing well yourself at your blog. Keep up the great work.

Hey Tammy -

Hot enough for you out there? I don't know about you, but I'm kinda wishing now for a little rain to ease off the intensity.

Something tells me I should have tanned a month or two ago too - it is pretty tough out there now, and with all our sun there's no way I'd pay to fake bake. But at least my face and forearms get some color as I walk in the evenings.
