GOP Opposes Tax on Tanning Salons


Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee said that “no amount of sunscreen or Aloe will relieve the pain of the Democrats’ impending 10 percent tax on indoor tanning beds” (which have been medically proven to cause skin cancer). The Heritage Foundation blasted the tax as well, while Fox News reported live from a tanning salon, declaring the tax to be “unfair,” “confusing,” and even “discriminatory.” No mention was made of the cancer danger that tanning beds pose.
