4th of July's Celebration of Freedom and Liberty ruined by Tan Tax!

Our worst fears have been realized, according to Grove Norquist and his Americans for Tax Reform:

Thanks to Feingold and Kohl, Obamacare tanning tax starts today.
What a time to hit up our unemployed American families struggling to keep their tans a rich bronze!

452,500 Wisconsinites who visit tanning salons will be getting an unwelcome lesson in Obamacare as a new 10 percent federal excise tax on indoor tanning takes effect.
Democrats, despite their tough talk about defending pay equity for woman, are really out to destroy women business owners:

The Indoor Tanning Association show(s) that well over half of tanning salon owners are women. The 724 tanning facilities in Wisconsin are estimated to employ 2,642 people.
Democrats are on notice, especially Sen. Herb "Khol":
“Senators Feingold and Khol have some explaining to do,” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform.
Norquist goes one step further to politicize even the smallest purchase with this snarky "humorous" tax exemption card.

Americans for Tax Reform has issued an “Obama Tax Hike Exemption Card”, a wallet-sized parody card which “exempts” those making less than $250,000 from
paying any form of tax increase signed into law by President Obama. If challenged upon presentation of the card, the cardholder may politely ask:
“Excuse me, but are you calling President Obama a liar?”
Nice way to slow the check out line, losers. (Idea: Say it while reaching for your loaded "open carry" hand gun.)

I've never patronized one of these fake sunshine establishments but how much extra is a 10% tax going to cost someone? And I also propose a 10% on toupees.
