Obama’s First Tax Hike Takes Effect

Barack Obama’s first tax hike, a 62-cent increase on tobacco products, went into effect yesterday. The tax hurts the poor the most. One one hand they want us to believe that these taxes discourage and decrease smoking. On the other hand they say that they’ll fund various healthcare programs, in this case, SCHIP. That doesn’t make much sense.
