New federal tobacco tax to fund healthcare begs.......keep smoking America it's for the children

Minnesota implemented a similar tax in 2005 for the very same purpose. Thousands of flyers above were handed out to Minnesotans as a public service announcement.

News of the federal tobacco tax, which will burden primarily lower and middle class Americans can be found in depth here:

In signing the Children’s Health Insurance Recovery Act into law Feb. 4, President Obama expanded SCHIP — already covering 7 million children — to provide coverage for another 4 million children who have working parents and don’t qualify for Medicaid but can’t make enough for private health insurance.

However, to pay for this nearly $33 billion expansion of coverage, the tax on a pack of cigarettes will increase 62 cents, single cigars go up 40 cents and — for those of you saving money by rolling your own Joes — loose tobacco receives a $23.53 a pound hike.....

Smokers pay more than their fair share of taxes already:
