    What if a poor person buys cigarettes with their food stamps card and pays tax on them!??

    It is a well-worn myth that food stamps can be used to buy cigarettes or alcohol- it cannot be done. And if it could, it would be tax-exempt, as food stamp purchases are. But many poor people smoke, and, at least where I live, there are big sales taxes on cigarettes. Does paying this count towards voting rights in the Nuge-plan??
