Quote of the Day

"I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes . . . . you will not see any of your taxes increase one single dime."
-- Barack Hussein Obama, Sept. 12, 2008

Today the tobacco tax was raised. Tax on cigarettes went up nearly 62 cents a pack to $1.01, a 258% increase. Roll your own? Bulk tobacco taxes went from $1.0969 per pound to $24.78 per pound, a rise of 2259%. And this was for everyone, not just those making more than $250,00.
