Tanning salons burned by health care bill
Please KEEP the Tan Tax!
I am writing to MAKE SURE the tax on sun tanning that was included the health care reform legislation STAYS IN PLACE.
This tax will ultimately be paid by the consumer and working Americans, working women and college students. AND MEN WHO I SEE GO IN THERE ALL THE TIME, INCLUDING ALL THE PORN STARS AND ALL THE INNOCENT CUSTOMERS WHO ARE KILLING THEMSELVES EVERY TIME THEY STEP FOOT IN A SALON ... It is wrong - THAT'S TRUE, IT IS WRONG THAT THESE TANNING SALONS ARE STILL OPEN AFTER THE MANY CASE STUDIES THAT SHOW A DIRECT LINK TO CANCER.
I USED TO regularly suntan indoors UNTIL I HAD A SKIN CANCER SCARE and DO NOT resent this attack on these small businesses.- I DON'T FEEL BAD FOR A BUSINESS JUST BECAUSE IT'S SMALL IF IT'S HANDING OUT CANCER. Indoor tanning salons are an important part of every community, providing jobs and a service we seek. - NO NEED TO SAY ANYTHING HERE. THERE IS NO IMPORTANCE TO THESE TANNING COFFIN SERVICES.
Please tell House and Senate leaders to say YES to this NOT outrageous NOR unnecessary, IT'S WONDERFUL AND PERFECTLY NECESSARY tax on small business.
