Start Smoking if You Don’t Already…

Start Smoking if You Don’t Already Smoke!!!!!

by Justin Evans

I don’t smoke, never have, never will….unless I am on fire….and yes….I have been on fire before.  Funny story, but not now people, I have a point to make.

Everyone in the state of South Carolina needs to start smoking….and smoke a ton.

Why?

The SC General Assembly…under Republican control…has raised the states cigarette tax by $.50 per pack.

Why? They say:

A. To discourage people from smoking.

And

B.  To “fully” fund Medicaid obligations.

Come on people.  If you discourage people from smoking…thus having less smokers…common sense dictates you will not have the revenue necessary to “fully” fund Medicaid…which means these morons will have to find this cash somewhere else…likely cutting core government services like teachers if history is any guide…

So SMOKE!  All of you!

And remember….with every cigarette you smoke, you could be saving a life!

The most unfortunate part of this tax hike is the fact that it is just that….a blatant tax hike.

Aren’t Republicans supposed to support lower taxes and limited government?  This is an example of the Republican hypocrisy I have been ranting about for months.  In fact, here they RAISED taxes to EXPAND government.  Completely the opposite of what they claim to believe in.

Without a corresponding tax decrease, our Republican lawmakers once again failed their constituents, their party, and the state as a whole.

The SCGOP?  Nowhere to be found on this issue.  In fact, there is little evidence that the Chairman of the SCGOP even understands these policy issues….otherwise she would surely comment on how completely hypocritical her Republicans are being.

Speaking of the SCGOP….

Don’t we have a Republican primary coming up on June 8th?

Why yes we do.

Outside of 2 short emails about registering to vote, I have seen nothing out of the SCGOP to indicate that they have a plan, or even care about, people showing up to the polls.

Just more failure from SCGOP leadership.
