Hey all… first let me say this is NOT THE PLACE to put down tanning, tell us we shouldn’t, that we’ll die of skin cancer, yada yada. So please don’t post that.
Girls who indoor tan- I urge you to visit this site! http://www.stopthetantax.com/ In its version of the Healthcare Reform Legislation, the Senate added a 10% tax on indoor tanning services, which would mean an increase in tanning costs for all of us.
I got this second email from Sun Tan City…
Legislative Update – Tan Tax
Because little was accomplished at President Obama’s Health Forum yesterday, it is now more likely than ever that the President and Congressional Democrats will forge ahead to pass some form of healthcare reform legislation without any Republican support.
The worst scenario for our industry would be for the House of Representatives to approve the Senate version of the bill, which passed the Senate last Christmas Eve and contains the Tan Tax. The President would woo reluctant Democrats in the House into passing the Senate bill with a promise to “fix” lingering issues through a “Budget Reconciliation” bill.
Under Senate rules, “Reconciliation” can not be filibustered and a simple Senate majority of 51 votes would be all that is required.
We must keep the Tan Tax on Congress’ radar! If we don’t, legislators will assume we don’t care anymore.
This week, we generated an additional 14,000 emails. Good progress, but we have to maintain the pressure. If you have already sent an email to Congress, you don’t have to do so again, but please continue to spread the word. Recruit one additional person. Forward this link and tell everyone to click and http://www.stopthetantax.com!
It’s important to me so I already clicked, but if anyone else feels similarly I urge you to act as well!
