The people that tanned probably thought it was funny every time they taxed tobacco it's not so funny when it happens to something you enjoy is it.

Amazing...Once again, they tax the little guy while dropping the tax on cosmetic surgery, which we all know is done mostly by the HOLLYWOOD TYPES and OUR POLITICIANS... SO.. tax the little guy/woman trying to look good but let their LIBERAL HOLLYWOOD TYPES, who make HUGE MONEY, off the hook......The power grab is on!

Will Hussein Obama tax Nancy Pelozi's facelift? That woman's face looks as about as tight as an unopened tube of Braunschweiger.

When people quit tanning because of it, the money isn't going to magically reappear elsewhere, so Barry and his wild bunch are going to look to impose taxes elsewhere.(Certainly not on plastic surgery and "botax" because it would affect half of Washington. Nancy Pelosi and foul-mouthed Joe Biden, I'm looking at you.)
Typical Democrats: They want people cradled by government or very afraid of it.
Kick these socialist pukes out of office.

Get used to it, suckers. It's only the beginning. I wonder how many of those now affected voted for that imposter. I say any so-called laws the imposter signs are null and void until he shows real proof of his citizenship.

I've voted GOP many times in the past, but I'm sick of their scorched earth policies, obstrutionism at the expense of working Americans, and lack of ideas.

The GOP health plan wanted tax cuts to small business and tort reform. Trouble is, this law DOES has those tax cuts and Ohio has proven that tort reform doesn't lower health care costs.
A recent Plain Dealer reported the fact that Ohio's health care costs have risen 19% since we stuck it to patients in 2004 and limited verdicts when doctors and hospitals screw up. This actually is higher than neighboring states who do not have tort reform.

We just need SOLUTIONS, not a Rush Limbaugh party that wants to "wipe out" the opposition as Rush said.

The GOP plan: Get sick, die quick.
