Obama's 94 cents per pack cigarette tax hike
on top of the existing tax hike of 2009.

WTF is this ???

if you buy cigs by the carton, then
you can start adding another $10
per carton to the sales price.

cigarette tax hikes hurt the poor
and middle class.

hey bro, why don't you stay out of our wallets

Re: Obama's 94 cents per pack cigarette tax hike
Big fricken deal.

We pay prov tax of 25 cents per cig that's $50.00/carton of 200.
Then there is federal tax on top.

A carton of 200 runs you between $90.00 and $115.00 or $11. to $14 /pack of 25.

I quit 39 days ago and have saved $400. so far.

You have a long way to go to catch up with the tax on our smokes.

On the plus side, I feel a 1000 times better since I quit the evil white cancer sticks.

you are missing the point.

What if Obama put a 2 dollar tax
on every can of coffee you buy ??
just because he says it will stop
arthritis ??

it don't affect you until it's
a product you use.

then you stand up, hypocrite.

or what if Obama put a 1 dollar tax
on every 2 liter soda because it causes
diabetes ???

It's the same exact thing !!!

too damn much intervention in our lives.

I don't want to be regulated.
I want to be liberated.

Difference is Obama doesn't pay for his cigarettes...WE DO! And by that I mean we pay for HIS so he won't even feel the effects of this latest enslavement! If it's that big of a deal, they should just make them illegal! Oh, but I forgot...it's healthy things like raw milk that are illegal. Cigarettes actually help with their depopulation agenda so smoke 'em if you've got 'em!

No, you are incorrect. Price controls and taxation on certain products, labeled by the govt, is not LEGAL. Hmmm, maybe we should start taxing the fuck out of gas for people who drive and ruin the environment? Or perhaps those that eat healthy, because it requires more labor to process. Bullshit can be made up all day long. Just because you don't agree with something, does not make your agenda correct...
