Time to Clear The Air!

I found this on another web site. Smoking, and other forms of tobacco (ab)use, cost the American taxpayer billions and billions of dollars each year. Who do you think pays when a senior citizen has to be treated for lung or throat cancer? Medicare. When a younger cancer victim becomes disabled and can no longer work, who do you think pays? Medicaid. Yep - that's you and I, the American taxpayer. It is time end this scourge and raise the cost to the tobacco user.
