Law Would Kill Native American Cigarette Sales

Cigarette sales measure now in Obama's hands

President Barack Obama could determine the future of the Seneca Nation of Indians’ economy.

Late Thursday night the U.S. Senate unanimously passed the Prevention of All Cigarette Trafficking Act. Through the legislation the U.S. Postal Service will no longer ship cigarettes in the mail.

All that’s needed for the act to become law is President Obama’s signature.

Outraged by the Senate’s approval of the legislation, Seneca Nation President Barry Snyder said more than 1,000 local jobs tied to Native mail-order cigarette sales will be lost.

“What we’re witnessing is an effort by Philip Morris and other global tobacco companies to wipe out competition any way they can,” President Snyder said. “In this case, at the expense of our economy and our federal treaty rights,” More...

1. Obama got elected mostly because of minority groups.
2. The Indians are allowed to have competetive prices on gas even though it may be tax free.
3. Did Obama even write the bill or is it just his signature needed to kill the Act?
4. Yes Immigrants took their land so they do deserve more then what they are offered to an extent.
5. One more step at the Government starting its Act of Martial Law, policing, and sanctioning peoples freedom.

Don't blame Obama for something the Congress, and Senate put on his shoulders.

I seen a question the other day on a site it asks "Whats the difference between a Green Apple, and President Obama"? I replied a Green Apple may have 1 or 2 worms in it, where Obama has over Hundreds of worms called congress and senate.

You make good points, with that being said...Obama needs to man up and tell the speaker of the house to shut her darn mouth and tow the line, or else! She has made a joke of our government, look at her home state for heaven's sake, broke as hell and sinking fast!

It is HIS job to put a muzzle on the silicone queen!

Amazing, does it matter who is in the White House? No, people just like to complain. I agree Mike, if we as Americans would stand up and end this Merry-Go-Round we could make the difference. Until then just a bunch of empty complaining. Cheryl Bryant

If the indians don't pay taxes, do they expect Social Security and Medicare like the illegal aliens?

Ok let’s talk what’s real

Indians don’t pay tax…..
Well in many cases that’s true, only because they live below the poverty level.
They don’t have the ability either to receive EIC like non natives. (That’s where they take your tax money and give it someone who doesn’t work).
I have worked since I was 15 and paid my share of taxes all my life! Income and property.

Natives do not receive social security or medicare!
Native people living on the rez receive an allotment. Social Security and medicare would be a major improvement to the quality of life.

Give them back their land and make them earn a competitive wage. Listen up, my entire family, for generations have been hard working individuals. It is with pride that we have been raised that we do our far share.

Break our treaties; OK then the treaty of 1776 is void. This land returns to our people and we will bring about strong immigration laws. You complainers can start packing.

We are not LAZY!

The native population of this country volunteers their service in the US Arm Forces higher then any other demographic in the US. We did it in every battle and every war, even when we were not citizens.

These are facts!
Not rumors!

Leave the tabacco alone
