Default Re: new tobacco taxes?

SCHIP is what it's called, and I really actually don't mind as much. Well maybe because i have ways...

Anyway, the money you spend on more taxes on tobacco products will go to fund a health care system built for children who's parents can't afford one. There are MANY different ways to go about getting children free healthcare; the tobacco monsters just decided that they could kill 2 birds with one stone, you know, kill tobacco and save children (ironic isn't it?). It has been proven that SCHIP calls for a certain amount of money, which would mean that 21 million more people would need to take up smoking, even though it will be more expensive than it was in March 2009. It doesn't make much sense, and most smart people have been stocking up recently.

I like the cause, but I don't like how they are going about funding it.

But it's America, remember? What can ya do...
