Oh no, they are targeting vice of the lower wage earners. You better stop drinking the malt liquor, and smoking cigs...the tax hike wont effect you, then.
A pack-a-day smoker who makes $35,000 would go from spending 4 percent to spending 5 percent of his income on cigarettes under the proposed tax plan.
Kind of sounds like a lottery to me, a voluntary tax on the poor. Run and pay put your final $10 in hope of a few million in return. Never mind you only made 250 that week. Nothing like a voluntary tax....
Ah, the perfect little liberal twit- believes in the freedom of a woman to have her baby murdered, but not in the freedom of an adult to enjoy some of the pleasures of life. How nice of you to justify a) tyranny, and b) Joe Biden's lies.
Not that it matters, but I neither smoke nor drink alcohol. Unlike you, however, I am not interested in imposing my will on that which should be optional. The best part of your ignorance is that this is only an example of how Biden lied directly, whereas the rest of Biden's taxes will come to you indirectly via higher prices on everything.
Only 1% more on a low income citizen? Here's something else liberals are terrible at- math! 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+etc = more than 40% of what anyone makes going in some form or another towards fueling Big Government, which in turn grows to take away more and more freedom and liberty. I know that is cool with the average liberal, like yourself, who is deep down terrified of life, and therefore desperately needs someone else to manage their life for them. Interminable children, mentally speaking, trapped in adult bodies.
"Doesnt [sic] change the fact that it is what it is, a voluntary tax on vice.... "
Who says it is a vice? Democrats/liberals are all for all sorts of vices/sins as God defines sin, yet smoking and drinking are not automatically sinful. Very close minded of you, and something I imagine you are a hypocrite over.
Everything goes, until you need to justify what your "god", the Democrat Party, does?
btw- It is voluntary to decide to buy cigarettes and/or alcohol. The tax, however, is NOT voluntary, and you are a fool to say so. Not unlike this nonsense coming from Harry Reid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7mRSI8yWwg
I honestly can never tell if people like you are just being contrary for the sake of getting attention, or if you are really this stupid.
I've already shown your concept of what you are calling "voluntary" is anything but, so there is no point continuing to prove you wrong. You may indeed be this stupid, but I suspect that you just enjoy tormenting others, via who you vote for, as well as online like this. Very much like your father, the Devil- a true tormentor.
I am beyond your reach as tormentor though- I see you as a sad and pathetic individual, who lives an immoral life while calling something someone else wants to do a "vice". One of the primary prerequisites for being a lib is being a hypocrite. On that count, you are the real deal.
