Typical politicians. Raise the taxes on the many so as to pay the overspending of the few!

So, you geniuses on White Stone city council think that by rasing the cigarette tax by $1.50 a carton will raise over $29,000 to cover your deficit?

Yeah, right! Now, watch what really happens:

People will just buy a single pack to hold them over until they can get outside of White Stone and save their money buying their cigaretts elseshere.

And who wins? Kilmarnock, Saluda, etc. And what happens to the sales reciepts of the poor White Stone businesses? Further in the red than they alerady are (we're in a recession. Remember?)

Remember what Forest Gump so wisely said? Stupid is as _________ does!
