More tax for you?

No coverage for you?

The Feds are anti-smokers and won't waste an opportunity as juicy as "giving you free healthcare" to deny you the right to smoke.

The rationale will be combating the high cost of treating smokers in the healthcare industry, and since under a nationalized healthcare system that will mean tax dollars........

Here's a link to a PDF report by the World Health Organization:
[link to www.euro.who.int]

WHO European Strategy for Smoking Cessation Policy

A 2000 report by the US Surgeon General emphasizes that smoking cessation is one of the most cost-effective of all health care treatments. The data show that smoking essation is considerably more costeffective than most health care interventions. This means that, in time, introducing smoking cessation into health care systems will release resources for other needs.
