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.

Maybe this will help me quit once and for all.....who knows. I know that I absolutely won't pay another $1.00 a pack, so quitting will be the only alternative.

Maybe that's a good thing.

Re: Obama's 94 cents per pack cigarette tax hike
in 2009 a 34 cents tax hike

in 2013 a 94 cents tax hike

for every pack of cigarettes you buy

$1.24 goes to the government.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24501290


$1.24 goes to the government. $1.24 to the Feds.. .
Then there are State Tobbaco Tax and
then there is State Sales Tax, and
then there is usually City Sales Tax..

20 packs per cartons, .. just in Federal Tobbaco Tax = 24.8

Hmmm I just bought a carton of Pall Malls and paid $36.00 including tax.. so, hmmm... 36.00 - $24.80 = $11.20.. and at lesat 7% of that $11.20 is my State and City Sales Tax for $0.74 sales tax. THis does not include the State Tobacco Tax either, and some Cities also put on a Tobbaco Tax was well as the sales tax.

Now,imagine the poor sucker that is on social disability income of $712 and buys 4 cartons a month.. that is 24.80x4 = $99.20.. andthat is $99.20 in federal tobbaco tax.. and that in a year is nearly $1,200 in federal tobbaco tax.. and then so man ywill accuse this man of not being a "Tax payer"...

But just spending that $712 a month on stuff that is fully under the State and City Sales tax of 7% is $712 x .07 = $49.84..over 12 months, $598.08 per year in Sales Tax..

And because he is on Socical Security (which he also spent 45 years paying into) this man is accused of being a bum, and on the government dole, and is not considered a TaxPayer.. go figure..

Even people on Government Welfare are in fact also paying taxes so that there are no people not paying taxes, no not even the Uber Rich, as they too buy stuff like a pop or a candy bar or a pack of smokes.. and pay Sales Taxes.

Its time to stop thinking that the only tax is the Income Tax.

Now consider the poor guy tha busy a six pack of beer a night.. how much TAX is that many paying?

What the hell is all this TAX revenue actually being spent on? Hmmmmmmmmm?

Tax the shit out of it.

Same for McDonalds.


Tired of my medical costs being so high because of obese people and people who smoke.

A CT scan in america is about 1000 dollars.

I can get the same quality CT scan in Europe for about 100.

On the reservation I can get a carton of camel 99's for like 40 bucks.

this is equivalent to a gov siege

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 37825088


yes, I agree.

meanwhile while tobacco goes
underground, Obama contributes
to the firing of 20K laborers
connected to the cig companies.
Not to mention countless businessmen
who have small cig shops who go out
of business.

So much for economic growth
losing 20K+ more jobs.

How's that change working out
for ya ???

Seriously, you go there on this...

Wtf, cigs are white, cancerous golden brown tobacco and 4000 other toxic chemicals wrapped up in a pretty white stick. where in the hell does racism come into play? That my friend is a stretch. Those evil white sticks are not alive or have a race yet they show no mercy on anyone. We are all equally capable of falling into the entrapment of the nicotine monster and the pain and agony of the destruction it can cause.


I just happened to be hooked on the white sticks, not chew, not pipe, not cigars. All the same just sold in different packages.

So put your excuses away, been there, done that, this is about walking away from addiction to tobacco and and it is easier than you might think.

This my friend, is about your freedom.
