    I don't give a shit about what the lifetime costs of taking care of an individual are.  I care about keeping people as healthy as possible as long as possible.  If raising cigarette taxes contributes to that end, I'm all for it.

    You've got some serious ideological blind spots, you know that?

    Don't expect to live in a democracy if you're not prepared to be an active citizen.

      ....your "smokers are bankrupting the health care system" meme and reconfigured your argument to disqualify my ethics.

        I've consistently said here that increasing cigarette taxes was good because it would help decrease the number of smokers.  I have not made an economic argument, but a health-related one.

        Nice try, but try reading before you respond.
