Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., recently told a town hall in Gainesville, Fla., that Obamacare was racist because it taxes tanning beds, which dark-skinned people do not use, but whites do.
“I had a little fun with Boehner and told him about the sun tanning tax," Yoho said on Saturday (auido below), according to RightWingWatch.org. "He goes, ‘I didn’t know it was in there,’ and I said, ‘Yes, it’s a 10 percent tax.' He goes, ‘Well, that’s not that big of a deal.’ I said, ‘It’s a racist tax.'"
After the crowd laughed and applauded, Yoho added: “I had an Indian doctor in our office the other day, very dark skin, and I asked this to him, ‘Have you ever been to a tanning booth? He goes, ‘No, no need.’ So therefore it’s a racist tax and I thought I might need to get to a sun tanning booth so I can come out and say 'I’ve been disenfranchised because I got taxed because of the color of my skin.' As crazy as that sounds, that’s what the left does right. By God, if it works for them, it’ll work for us.”
