Plastic Bubble Tax

The Associated Press released a story today that says Obama's health care bill--now law--will impose a tax on tanning salons.  (Link here.)  The idea is that tanning salons are bad for health and should be taxed, similar to taxes added on tobacco products.

What's next?

  • Outdoor-Construction-worker tax?
  • Farmer-in-the-Sun tax?
  • Fastfood tax?  
  • Potato Chip tax?  
  • Bicycle Accident tax?  
  • Sitting On Your Ass In a Theater Eating Popcorn Tax?
  • Sitting On Your Couch Eating Popcorn Tax?
  • Taunting Pitbull tax?
  • Entering Combat tax?
  • Skydiving tax?
Maybe we should just push for a blanket tax.  

It would be called, "Leaving My Safe Warm Plastic Bubble Tax."

We actually need a "Taxing Politicians that Raise Blood Pressure and Stress Tax."

I agree ---- what are they going to tax next. Such a small world and it looks like the rich are the only ones that thrive. It is not the working people that gain any thing,we just try to survive on a daily basis.
