Snooki calls out Obama
The Jersey Shore star swerves into the complexities of the US tax code

MTV—Jersey Shore star Snooki took a jab at the president in a recent episode regarding new health care reform regulations of UV ray sessions:

"I don’t go tanning anymore because Obama put a 10 percent tax on tanning. [Sen. John] McCain would never put a 10 percent tax on tanning. Because he’s pale and would probably want to be tan. Obama doesn’t have that problem. Obviously.”

Not one contributing member of KP has seen a single episode of Jersey Shore but the sound bite made its way virally through the Internet for all to see. It showcases the sad state of reality television as well as the sad reality of unintended consequences of bad legislation. Perhaps it will shine a light bulb over the dim heads of MTV reality junkies—when you regulate something more, you get less of it. But then again, if you so recall, liberal minds don’t reconcile basic economics.
