Chalji: spman: And how do you propose we make up for the lost tax revenue now that nobody can afford to pay cigarette taxes anymore?Make up for it in reduced health care costs?
Nemo's Brother: cig-mkr: I'll be the first to admit that smoking isn't healthy for you.To modify a legal social behavior by government over taxation of a service or product is wrong.To stop obesity should the overtax hamburgers ?Just as much, they should tax the fat ass Total Farkers for every minute of recreation computer or tv time they use. Go outside, you fat farks. Quit farking up my healthcare.
Mister Peejay: Chalji: spman: And how do you propose we make up for the lost tax revenue now that nobody can afford to pay cigarette taxes anymore?Make up for it in reduced health care costs?That only makes sense if the government was providing the health care. Making cigarette taxes extremely high will do nothing but funnel money from the government to the healthcare industry in yet another example of corporate welfare./flaw in premise 1: Health insurers rape you for premiums if you are a tobacco user/flaw in premise 2: Smokers don't live as long, so they pay into Social Security while being less likely to get anything back from it/flaw in premise 3: The longer you live, the more you rack up healthcare expenses, especially in your later years when you're living on a diet of medication cocktails that need frequent adjustments
