Obamacare Penalizing Smokers- "Pay to Sin"
"Smokers, beware: tobacco penalties under President Obama’s Affordable Care Act could subject millions of smokers to fees costing thousands of dollars, making healthcare more expensive for them than Americans with other unhealthy habits."

Wow, and this coming from a man who still secretly smokes. What are the older folks who smoke going to do??

Yet another excuse to gouge people for more money. I mean, they don't have these penalties in effect for obese people or those with other health problems brought on by stuff like drinking and other things???

another do

If you smoke, tell them you dont. If you own firearms, tell them you dont. If its none of their business, dont tell them. If big bro doesnt like it, tell them to fuck off and study the bill of rights.

You pay to smoke because it's bad for your health but they are not taxing faggots for engaging in a practice that is worse for your health. Aids costs more to treat than cancer does.

How much are 20 cigarettes?

Are they heavily taxed?

They've raised taxes for years. I can remember when I was a kid... my mom buying a pack of smokes for .65 cents. It's ridiculous.

All because of the excuse that "you shouldn't be smoking anyway, so if you do... you're gonna pay for it...".

Where has freedom gone? Besides, nicotine in natural tobacco not treated with additives has been shown to have beneficial effects.

Now they are coming after e-cigarettes. The FDA is ruling on them as we speak. If they start taxing e-cigs, then they are just gonna show themselves even more that it's not really the health issues, it's all about the money...

Which we've known all along anyway... but the "plausible deniability" can only wear so thin.
