    What happens when more and more people stop smoking?

    Who do you suppose will pay for the program?

    You guessed it! ALL the rest of us.

    Ever heard of a government giveaway being stopped after it got started?

    Why do parents have children they can't take care of?

    Why are some people forced to pay for this?

    I don't smoke, don't like smoking, and have never tried it, but I don't think we should tax a single item we don't like to raise revenues. What happens when someone decides that sugar is evil and they put a tax hike on all things that have sugar??

    Gone are the days when parents cared for their children.

    Our children have been kidnapped, and are now raised, fed, and taught by the feds.

    They can raise the tobacco tax, but I don't think making a government program dependent on people living unhealthy lifestyles is a good idea. Putting any extra funds towards debt sounds like a good idea.
