I don’t smoke, thank God.
But for those of you who do, be aware that the tax on a pack of cigarettes is going up 62 cents per pack on March 31, 2009. Other tobacco products will suffer a similar increase.
A pack-a-day smoker will spend an extra $226 a year to feed his/her habit.
This increase represents a new tax that does not affect just those making over $250,000 a year; this is yet another of Obama’s broken campaign promises. Pardon me for asking, but isn’t breaking a promise the same as telling a lie?
So, the increase in taxation begins. Those of you who smoke, and voted for Obama, should pay cheerfully! Be glad you are doing your part for the cause!
This is tiny compared to what is coming. Be aware.
