Re: Cigarette Tax Increase

I think it is wrong. I believe the government is discrimanting against smokers and tobacco users. It is not illegal and they are punishing us for it. It is not fair for tobacco users who are already paying hefty taxes in Texas to pay for school funding. What happens when they drive the cost of tobacco up so high that no one can afford it. Then you have the same problem as before. It is not a fix to the problem, it is a temporary relief untill there is no money left to pay for school funding and child healthcare. Where will they go next? If they want american taxpayers to pay for it then it should be every american being taxed not just tobacco users
