Senate Democrats Will No Longer Tax Your Lipo. But Your Fake Baking Is About to Cost 10% More


Your fears of a 5 percent tariff on butt lifts, rhinoplasty, and injectables like Botox and Restylane are over! Senate Democrats have dropped the so-called “Botax,” likely after major uproar from the well-moneyed cosmetic surgery industry, which was supposed to raise $5 billion. But don’t think Dems have entirely thrown out the idea of taxing America’s addiction to aesthetic improvements: The cast of Jersey Shore is about to see their tanning experience get hit with a hike.

In place of Botax is a 10 percent tax on indoor tanning. Or, as the Senate’s bill refers to it, the tax will be “intended for the irradiation of an individual by ultraviolet radiation, with wavelengths in air between 200 and 400 nanometers, to induce skin tanning.” Which, as far as we’re concerned, is a tax on WHITE PEOPLE!

And Sarah Palin.

Looks like spray-ons it will be.
