    Mr Obama campaigned that he would only increase taxes for those that make over $250,000.00.
    Holy shit, you mean every smoker in the country just got a salary increase to $250K?

    If everybody quit, think of all the poor children that would no longer receive health care funding. Think of all the tobacco farmers and cigarette company employees that would no longer have an income source.
    I'll take my $250K salary instead.

    I didn't say anyone else had to quit.. Merely that I'm too damned cheap to keep paying for them. :)

    You are so cold-hearted. Think of the poor children that need this funding for health care.

    Me too! That did it. I'll save about $40 per week. Already gave up Starbucks, though didn't have that as bad. ;) Lucky me, I'm fine with nearly any coffee.

    I am now so ashamed of myself for quitting.

    Shit. I frequent Starbucks so often I paid the $25 a year for their discount card in Dec. and have already saved the cost of the card.
