Breaking News: Tanning Tax in Effect Starting July 1

29 Jun

Tanning Prices Skyrocketing!

So I’m sure everyone’s heard about the new tax that will be implemented to all tanning packages on July 1st. It’s all part of Obama’s new healthcare plan, and of course people are outraged. Tanning salons already charge ridiculous amounts for just 10 minutes of tanning, and add another 10% on top of that, and it turns into quite the hefty sum to pay to look as though you just came back from a vacation in the mediterranean.

I can’t say I disagree with the new changes. I mean it’s clear that for the most part, the reasoning behind the bill is to generate some needed cash for the US, but let’s also assume that Obama really cares about his people’s health and would like to lower the risk of skin cancer.

Our dear Snooki, of The Jersey Shore, said herself that she believes Obama did it just for those guidos and guidettes in southern Jersey who fry their skin on a regular basis to get that perfect oompa loompa look. We’ll give him the benefit of the doubt.

On a side note, Eminem’s new album, Recovery, has a song featuring Rihanna called Love the Way you Lie and I am obsessed. I have been listening to it nonstop, I honestly think it’s really good. But then again, for someone who has been on hiatus for years, he kind of needs an incredible album to explain where he’s been the past few years.

Has anyone heard it?

More importantly, if you go tanning, will you be changing your habits to save some money?

Happy Shopping!
