The Government Gives You Another Reason To Go Goth

Snooki isn't going to be happy about this.

The 10% tanning tax— which was passed as part of President Obama’s sweeping healthcare overhaul legislation—went into effect today.

The bill could raise $2.7 billion by 2019 to help pay for healthcare.   Or it could not.  Stay tuned.

  1. Oh yeah, even tho when I was unenlightened, *cough* not goth, I used to do the tanning thing, when I heard about this tax, I thought, “Too right!” If people want to kill themselves, same as with ciggies, make it harder by upping the price.

    So few western white people seem to accept their whiteness (or pinkness), even as they talk about body acceptance, and fat acceptance and all the rest.

    Mind you I colour my hair, so I can’t *really* throw stones…well, not until they prove that bleaching causes cancer.

    • Oh no, not tanning. I’m glad you have seen the way and stopped seeing the light. I went through a super tan phase too when I was in my troubled teens. It was Jersey. I didn’t know any better.
