cigarette TAX

Postby Bob » Tue Mar 31, 2009 6:22 am

All you smokers got your pennies saved for your .60 per PACK federal tax INCREASE come April 1??

So how's that "CHANGE and HOPE" working out for you about now?

The gas tax is next, since we are used to paying 4.00 a gallon, then want to tax it back up to that range. He promised 95% a tax cut, well he just wiped out about 20% with his cigarette tax. Bend over, Obamas coming after you next. :popcorn:

Most places have already raised the price to prepare for the cig tax. I usually paid 3.35 for a pack of Marlboros. The past week, they've been around 4.75 a pack. Good thing I haven't had a cigarette since a week ago today. :peel:

Sounds like a fine opportunity to quit. If you need your nicotine, try cigars. Just one and you'll be buzzing like you chain smoked a whole friggin pack!

I do not empathize one tiny bit. That should give you guys incentive to QUIT smoking. Tax cigarette smokers more to fund children health insurance.......that is a WIN WIN scenario to me. I can't tell you how disgusted I feel when I see parents expose their young kids to cigarette smoke.

Smokes are a luxury people choose to use. I believe if they are going to force the issue on tobacco, they should take creatine powders and various other luxury items. Just as well bend over and fake a smile to keep them from coming back for more :thumbsup:
