Default Re: Proposed Bill to Raise Federal Tax on Pipe Tobacco

How did we end up at the fact that tobacco taxes were going to pay for Health Care?

I think the current administration has better things to pay for, mainly the huge debt, than Health Insurance. Your Health Insurance would be paid by you, and you only, by paying a monthly tax amount. It's like paying a flat rate price for your health insurance, unless you wish to purchase Private Insurance.

@foibled: Alright, thanks for that info. Maybe the mix-it-yourself style tobacco like Elements will make it big in the US then? I got about 200g of Shisha tobacco out of 10g Tobacco.
