Still, Mr Obama has been at pains over the past week to stress that his administration is nevertheless on the “precipice” of improving the daily lives of millions of Americans.

Still waiting to see who these millions of Americans are, no one seems to know, cannot be the millions who are against this thing from hell.

The bill imposes a 10 per cent tax on tanning salons on the basis that tanning beds are linked to cancer, but has removed the “botox tax” on elective plastic surgery
as requested by Speaker Pelosi .

Fixed it.

I swear Resident Obama has dropped his Chicago thug advisors for Clinton advisors. Up until now he’s been a uncompromising fascist bully, but both this and the Copenhagen agreement were far weaker than what was proposed and he’s spinning it to great victory along with all the deficit reduction BS.

What gives?

He can “improve my daily life” by moving to Kenya, Indonesia, or whatever Muslim stronghold he would prefer.

This Bill is a precursor to Public Option down the road. First, you get the infrastructure, then you get the impending doom of health care cost overruns, then you get the NEED for a “public option” which will result in killing off the old folks through health care rationing and keeping healthy the younger ones who’ve been through the “one world Government through “green” regulations” and “World Government for mother earth is my friend” indoctrination process. Killing the older Americans whose allegiance is to America and our Constitution, and nurturing the youth whose allegiance is to the Earth and thus, world government. There is a master plan here and can only be explained by the pace at which it is occurring in the face of extreme public opinion AGAINST it (health care bill, GITMO moved to Illinois, civilian trials for 911 masterminds, etc.)

How ELSE can one explain what is happening? You can’t! If you are over 40, you are a THREAT to our Government because of your allegiance to America. It’s just a matter of time, folks.

Tell me, which agency is going to regulate tanning beds? How are they going to collect this tax? From the states’ sales taxes? Or are salons supposed to ‘voluntarily’ report the frequency of tanning bed usage on their income tax returns?

BTW, most “indoor tanning salons” are small businesses. This is a new tax on small business.
