Federal Tobacco Tax Hike--WNEP TV Video


Change You Can Believe In--Yes We Can...

Yes you can...Yes you can...

If you feel the increased federal tax on tobacco does not effect you because you do not smoke, your are right, for now...

Because this is how the politicians work, sin tax first and when that does not generate enough revenue...tax something else more people use, you got it, gasoline!

Just wait until Obama decides that he needs to increase the federal tax on gas because so many people have quit smoking... there will not be enough tax money collected for his "insurance for children plan"...Is this insurance program going to be for the children of ALL working tax payers? Probable not, if you both work you earn too much in your household, you will be discriminated against again as usual. Why, because you have a conscience and were raised to "pay your own way in life"! This seems to be the case more often than not!

For those of you that do not know it, federal tax on a gallon of gas is all ready .198 cents a gallon. The state tax on a gallon of gas is .12 cents and the oil franchise tax is .184 cents a gallon...do the math and you will find your base price for a gallon of gas is a whole lot less per gallon at the pump than you think!

So much for Mr "O"'s stimulus plan...ya we got it, give with one hand and take away with the other! Some things just never change and it does not matter which party it is.

Tax, Tax, Tax...Yes you can...Yes you can!!

GREAT IDEA. TO DO THIS, COME ON THINK ABOUT IT, WHY NOT TAX THE SIN ITEMS FIRST. NEXT SHOULD COME ADDING A DOLLAR TO ALL LOTTERY TICKETS ON THE 1 DOLLAR 2 DOLLAR TICKETS AND EVEN DOING SOMETHING TO THE OTHER PRICED ONES. I AM SURE WE WILL GET BACK AND STEADY WITH IN THIS YEAR. JUST LIKE MR. OBAMA STATED TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE "PLEASE BE PATIENT, WITH TIME, WE THE PEOPLE WILL PULL AMERICA OUT OF THIS WHOLE THAT I WAS LEFT WITH"(BARACK OBAMA)

Rep. Chick:

You are absolutely correct. This is just another way for the politicians to get their fingers inside our wallets. When enough people quit smoking or chewing and the tax money no longer supports the continuous increase in government spending, then it will be on to something else to tax. I believe you are right when you state it will be gasoline. This will really hurt the working people in rural areas as they have to drive substantial distances to get to their jobs.
The solution is to QUIT the needless spending! Do not create $95,000 jobs when their is a "hiring freeze" and the Commonwealth is running a deficit in the millions.This is only one of many examples of Gov. Rendell's high salaried exceptions to his "hiring freeze." The recent hiring of an individual to explain the Stimulus Package to the citizens of Pennsylvania is particularly disgusting. If Gov. Rendell had hired competent people in the first place instead of political cronies, this position would not have been necessary.

adding more taxes when most are financially strapped, is not my idea of an economic stimulus package.
oh! that's right, I keep forgetting, we don't qualify for any of the bail out money.
only doomed big businesses count.

Since when is smoking a "sin"? Just because Obama doesn't smoke it's wrong? I'm not a smoker either but I know this is just the beginning of bad, bad things to come. Obama is a scary, dangerous man who doesn't have a clue of how to run our country. I hope everyone remembers who voted him into office when no one can afford to buy anything because we're paying outrageous taxes on EVERYTHING.

Pres. O does smoke, remember it was public AFTER the election. Not that it would have made a difference in the out come. If everything else is going to be taxed then why not cigs. Who gives a crap, people will still buy them even if the do gripe about it.

OBAMA IS A JOKE WE ALL KNOW IT. We knew bad things were coming as soon as we all found out he won the election. God help us all

Here is a great idea:

This was an article from the St. Petersburg
Times Newspaper on Sunday. The Business Section asked
readers for ideas on "How Would You Fix the
Economy?"

I thought this was the BEST idea.
I think this guy nailed it!

Dear Mr. President, Patriotic retirement:

There are about 40 million people over 50
in the work force; pay them $1 million a piece severance with
stipulations:
1) They leave their jobs. Forty million job
openings - Unemployment fixed.
2) They buy NEW American cars. Forty
million cars ordered - Auto Industry fixed.
3) They either buy a house or pay off their
mortgage- Housing Crisis fixed.

All this and it's still cheaper than the "bailout".

Love this idea!!

If they need the extra cash!!! why not tax something everyone uses. Don't just single out tabacco users. That way non smokers with children can help pay for the childrens health care.

Danny Dildine said...

You forgot one more stipulation for the over 50 people....they don't get to draw their social security........EVER.....social security system fixed.

One downfall of this idea is the fact that there are a lot of higher ups in companies that make over a million a year...they certainly won't take the buyout.

Not when Obama is done with them, will be telling any and all CEO's what they will be allowed to make, just a matter of time!

If you are going to receive bailout money he should have all right to tell you what the max somebody can make. When they can show that they can pay the money back in one form or another the govt will let them go. But i bet that pos that they regulate will not change money wise until years later.

About time there is a stop to over paying those who with their greed and poor management skils are put in their place, or fired. Better yet put in jail for white collar crime for workers lose of retirement plans.

To the poster NATHAN BURGETT. Do you pay taxes yet or are you the Nathan Burgett from Austin in college and living with his parents? You shouldn't be able to vote in america until you are 23 in my opinion.

If you never seen somebody suffer from and die from lung cancer. It is a sobering sight. I know that tobacco is not the only cause of this horrible disease but it is a major cause, if raaising the tax helps people quit the it is a good thing. I started smoking when I was thirteen and quit when is was twenty-one forty two years ago, I guess I was smarter than most

It's all so hopenchangey.
The governments imposing these tobacco SIN taxes are actually committing racist acts since most smokers are lower income, and many of them are minorities. Obama committed a racist act with this tax increase. Completely regressive. Why don't they tax cigs $1,000 a carton?

They don't want all people to quit, just enough to toot their horns to justify their tyranny. They will still be able to rely on all those taxes continually coming in from the hardcore addicts, which at the increasingly obscene rates will easily make up the taxes lost from the small percentage of quitters.

Politicians don't want people to stop smoking. If they did they would tax them $100 per pack. But this would just increase the black market even more, and the state would get no money.

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
raise taxes on the poor

tax cigs 200 percent
hurt poor smokers the most

.
absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
create racist outcomes

raise some taxes on the poor
hurt minorities the most

Throw them all out! All taxes on everything are bad. Gov't and citizens need to live within their means. They executed this early in the year. Send them a message on election day and vote them out of office.
