Tanning salons need better lobbyists

Among the new changes in the just revealed Reid healthcare plan:
An earlier proposal to tax elective cosmetic surgery was removed. In its place, lawmakers imposed a 10% tax on money paid for indoor tanning services. The tax would begin in July.

In addition to doctors, the insurance industry did well, too - - "the legislation no longer repeals the insurance industry's exemption from federal antitrust laws."

The tanning association trade organization (if there is one) needs to hire better lobbyists and start giving campaign donations to Obama.
