    •  NE2 - from a legal perspective that doesn't matter (0+ / 0-)

      It's the responsibility of Congress to look after the public interest. The fact that the tobacco companies, or anyone else, lobbied for the laws doesn't make them legally liable. Lobbying is a constitutionally protected right.
