Works for me

Can‘t ban cigarettes, tax them out of existence
$8.50 a pack now

In Canada, smokers pay nearly $15 per pack. Insanity.

A two pack a day habit will cost you $750 a month
Nice car payment
8.50 X 2 X 30 = $510 not $750. Still a good chunk of cash though. But then it's really none of your business in the first place what folks want to spend their money on. Only a dyed in the wool Marxist (like you) would worry about that shit.

Yes it's insane that the Government would try to control what folks put in their bodies by falsely hiking the prices.

A Smoking tax is not an income tax. It should not be used for general funds but targeted to reducing smoking and for smoker's healthcare. It's an extra tax and should provide something to those who are force to pay it.

So self righteous. Wow now it’s cool to prey on the lower classes. Do yourself a favor and check out the social and economic demographics of smokers.

SassyIrishLass Great point about the lottery! I remember when the lottery came to Arizona all the lawmakers were talking about how lottery proceeds were going to support our schools and lessen the burden on home owners. BAHAHAHAHA my property tax bills are SKY HIGH, and our schools are still crap. All they do is lie and try and take your money.

On the contrary. The taxpayers are footing the bill for smokers' health problems. It's good that the taxes they pay help cover the costs. Around here, a lot of people go to the 6 Nations Reserve and buy cigarettes at the Rez. $27 a carton on the Rez, versus $140 for Players, or other mainstream tobacco companies.

Native cigarettes smell like shit. I'm told they taste like it too.

Property tax bills are sky high to cover all those "excessive force" payouts to the victims of police brutality.

Hey dumbass, nobody is stopping parents from masking their own kids. They are just trying to let the parents make the choice. Fool.
No, FOOL
You do not get to choose whether your children should infect other children and their teachers

Wow, this going to hit the poor very hard.

But the dems don't care about the poor
I really have little sympathy for poor people, or anyone for that matter, who smoke

Another example of leftism at its core.
ME ME ME ME ME
"i am your moral superior so i will use the barrel of a gun to force my beliefs on you"
This belief ^^ is what leads to tens of millions of people being slaughtered to leftism.

The taxpayers should not be footing the bill for their healthcare in the first place. Socialist healthcare only makes everyone equally miserable. If you smoke, you should be on your own when it comes to healthcare. If you get sick, it's on you to pay not everyone else.
