  •  Yes, "For the Children".... (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    It's so monstrously disingenuous for these shmucks to tell us they hope for widespread quit rates among adults and especially children.  The bottom line is that this nation's future is mortgaged on tobacco taxes, now more than ever.  Everything from health care programs to state pension funds are propped up with a massive contingent of tobacco revenues they expect to be robust for the rest of eternity.  If children really are scared away from cigarettes due to the higher taxes, then tomorrow's financial crisis will make today's look a drop in the bucket.
