An actual person elected to the (Federal!) government:
I had an Indian doctor in our office the other day, very dark skin, with two non-dark skin people, and I asked this to him, I said, 'Have you ever been to a tanning booth?' and he goes, 'No, no need.' So therefore it's a racist tax...

why do you tell me these things? whyyy???
Wait. Just wait. The argument they're making is that it's racist to charge people a tax to use a completely elective service that causes skin cancer so that the tax money can be used for medical coverage? And, it's racist because people of color have no need to use the service, and therefore won't be paying taxes? And, it's a luxury service that people don't need to use? Either I don't understand how this tax works or I'm racist against the whites.
Reference from SuperMegaMonkeyBetter not let the anti-tanning bed tax people know that a policy that only incidentally targets a specific ethnicity is racist. Read More: I can't tie this one back to comic books
