A tax I am 100% for

Back Story: Our (Minnesota’s) newly elected governor failed to learn from the mistakes of past politicians and made a campaign promise of no new taxes. Unfortunately our state faces the largest budget deficit in its history and because Gov. Pawlenty rejects any proposal that raise taxes at the state level, out of hand, the local cities and townships are forced to raise property taxes. Net effect? More taxes.
I hope that Gov. Pawlenty decides to back this new tax proposal proposing a tax increase of $1 per pack of cigarettes – sorry Jesse, but I like this tax that will bring the taxes per pack in Minnesota from $0.48 per pack to $1.48. Even if he does go along with this bill he will be sure to show it is a tax shift and not an increase. I hate politicians.
