Maybe a few smokers should file a law suite about the fact that you have been PAYING for years via a tax on cigarettees into a state and federal system that was supposed to help cover the cost of medical care for smokers. Taxed you once shame on you - tax me twice...you must be a democrat.
We have noticed one thing about smokers that we know. The LAST thing they want to do is walk in to a doctors office. If you are not a smoker..you will never understand..if you are a smoker..nuff said.
My dad..after an excruciating round with cancer..finally “bothered” the medical establishment for pain killers eight days before he died. Too much spent on him? Do ya think his payments for health care probably covered the handful of pills and hospital bed for eight days?
Do I think smoking is good for ya? No. Do I think there are a heck of a lot of things that aren’t good for you out there? Yes. Why does it have to be smokers that get penalized? How about the dumb nuts that play football under the influence of who knows what? Will football players now have to pay higher premiums to the tune of thousands of dollars?
I don’t have a clue if I can stop. Why should I HAVE to stop smoking or be penalized for something that is TOTALLY legal to do?
I sincerely hope you are not calling me a democrat.
Not to mention inflated prices after the "Big Tobacco" go-zillion dollar lawsuit to offset the medical costs of tobacco use...
