    I see no legitimate need for this additional government intrusion. It is time to stop treating teenagers like they are little children because they are not little children. If both parents and their kids under 18 are stupid and irresponsible to allow this nonsense than that is their problem. More governmental regulations and laws are not the right answer. It is time for people to accept full accountability for their actions not run to the government for more unnecessary laws. This is why we are losing our freedom in this country because no one wants to accept full accountability for their actions including actions like this that are very high risk.

    Awesome. Another nail in the Obamacare coffin which is dependent on tanning salon taxes.

    In the budget deal, Democrats voted to delay the Cadillac Insurance Plan tax which further reduces financing for Obamacare.

    Did you blame the weather on Bush when he was in office? You truly come across as an extreme nutcase.
