War on Women – May 29, 2018 Message

HERE’S YOUR FIFTH MESSAGE:

THE TAN TAX UNFAIRLY TARGETS WOMEN

It’s been eight years since the beginning of the unfair Tan Tax. What other industry has been selectively targeted and taxed? NONE. While 10,000 businesses have closed and more than 100,000 women have lost their jobs, fitness clubs and other less professional competitors are thriving. However, they do not have adequately trained tanning operators.

Even worse, the CBO estimated the Tan Tax to raise $270 million per year but it has only brought in a small fraction of their projection of $79 million per year. In addition to the Tan Tax being a financial failure, women have been failed as well. Before the tax was started in 2010, women owned a little more than 18,000 tanning salons and employed over 160,000 women. Now? The numbers have drastically fallen. How many more women will be targeted and lose everything they worked for?

Please help us repeal the cruel tan tax and end the war on women!

REPEAL THE UNFAIR 10% TAN TAX – SUPPORT H.R. 1150 AND S. 2600
