    Remember will not raise taxes on people making under 100,000. Well that didnt last long, 64 cent a pack on Tobacco. WHAT PEOPLE making under 100,000 dont smoke. [​IMG]

    Guess they dont need to drive either, talk about taxing solf drinks now. Yep, they are going to taxes my Gin more also.


    Give me 13.00 a week in a tax break, and raise tax on most thing we buy, WHAT A JOKE. [​IMG]

    They must think we are dumb.

    Ahh yes the sin taxes. I heard they'll only be raising taxes on soft drinks if they aren't ones wont be taxed.

    Time to start ya a tobacco patch, that's what I'm planning on doing... and if they raise taxes on alchohol I'll be planting corn, barley and hops as well.

    I quit smoking last year, and I dont drink alchohol. But this gets under my skin SOOOOOOO bad. [​IMG] Regardless of wether you smoke or drink, its not right to tax something lawmakers call a "sin" at a higher rate than anything else. Im just gonna keep my mouth shut on here [​IMG]

    It's just going to open up a demand for the black market. My hubby quit a couple of years ago when they got up to over 4 bucks a pack. When they first started taxing smokes they did it under the guise of "the money will go to educating and health costs of those affected by smoking". Well I guess they did come through on the education part of it. Kids get taught that cigarettes are a drug that will kill them in the 1st grade and come home crying hysterically saying stuff like "my aunt is using drugs and she's gonna die".

    I'm glad that I don't smoke or drink, but I still think it's cruddy to see new taxes slapped on people like this. I also have a bad notion that the new taxes will not stop there.

    This is why government sux (Am I alowed to use that word?)
    At this point, we'll become a socialist empire. Ronald Reagan was right, "The worst words in the english language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help." I'm going to live in the nowheres of Montana. *starts packing*
