Snooki on Taxes

Recently Arizona Senator John McCain and Snooki from Jersey Shore had  a short discussion on Twitter regarding indoor tanning taxes:

“@Sn00ki u r right,” the 2008 Republican presidential candidate tweeted on his verified account. “I would never tax your tanning bed! Pres Obama’s tax/spend policy is quite The Situation. but I do rec wearing sunscreen!”

Snooki caught McCain’s shout-out and, though she didn’t respond to him directly, did tweet back, “Haha Yes!”

The health care reform legislation passed by Congress and the Obama administration imposed a 10% excise tax on indoor tanning services which goes into effect July 1st.

From a non policy standpoint this shows how the conservative movement is trying to embrace new media to attract the youth and get their message out to the public.
