Re: State Senate Democrats urge Gov. Paterson to tax cigarettes

Oh hella yes. Lawmakers, such as the Gov. of Texas, and Pres. Obama, whom I voted for, say no new taxes, but what they REALLY mean is no new taxes on certain ppl, or certain things, and what they REALLY mean, is if we tax the hella out of you, we want to hide it! sadmadroll Texas went from $8. dollars a carton cigarettes, to $50.---$60. dollars carton cigarettes! Thanks to taxes, and now we have an idiot: Medina running for Republican Governor, and because ppl are tired of the ones who have been in office, i.e. Gov. Rick Perry, and Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson, Medina is getting traction all over the others, with Republicans! & what does Ms. Medina propose? to do away with "property taxes" , and instead inact an overall sales tax, which will be 10 to 14 %! in other words, taxes will be paid by the poor!
My thinking is starting to change to neither party, nor any other other party cares one iota for anybody except the rich. sadhmmmadroll

I think in the next National election, God help us, because ppl are going to be tired of the persons in office, because ppl want a quick fix, and some real idiots  will be elected. People believe what they want to hear. sad
