23. I think that this is the real death tax
the GOP has been trying to label the inheiratance tax a death tax to get support from people that are so poor that it doesn't affect them. This is the real death tax. By the time we get organized enough to protest it we will be on our way to treatment at the cancer centers of america. I agree that it is a filthy habit and wish I could quit also but I don't want the government to tax my addiction. That is just unethical. Sorry I may ruffle a few feathers but that is the way I feel. I understand the arguement that the taxes are needed to pay medical expenses of uninsured smokers but it still irritates me. On your points I don't think it would help that much. The addicts need their fix. They won't quit. And even if they did I think it would be just a drop in the bucket. They recieve so much money from pharmaceutical and oil lobbyist to fund their fascist plans that our "taxpayer revolt" would not dent the coffers. If the idea helps you quit then run with it and good luck!
