Preckwinkle wants $1-a-pack cigarette tax hike

Oct 18, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Chicago Tribune

The tax on pack of smokes would rise by a buck in Cook County next year, which would leave Chicago with the second-highest per-pack tax in the nation, under County Board President Toni Preckwinkle's new budget proposal.

Cook county, that is Chicago, where was it Obama is from?

Remember the Chicago Democrats answer to things when you put Obama in, tax tax tax.

3/4 of the county budget goes to the criminal justice system, sounds like you need less criminals not more taxes.

Seems like every time those people get in charge of big city it is downhill after that.

Let me tell you how it will be
There's one for you, nineteen for me
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

Should five per cent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah I'm the taxman

If you drive a car, I'll tax the street,
If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat.
If you get too cold I'll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet.

Don't ask me what I want it for
If you don't want to pay some more
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

Now my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman
And you're working for no one but me.

Hell, tax everything. Start with perfume and cologne. I would rather smell cigarette smoke than most of that garbage How about potatoes? Way too much starch. Tax them. Double tax butter too while you are at it. Have a weight tax too. Pay a surcharge for being fat. Pay double when riding mass transit.

Tax this, tax that. Taxation is the democrat magic pill for everything. Are you liberals ever going to grow a brain and realize that we are overtaxed as it is and to JUST STOP SPENDING?

Coming to a town near you........

Flash: this just in.......new polls in Florida show the two biggest liberal concentration of voters where Obama won 63-35% and 68-28% against McCain now show only a 4 point spread and trending Romney.

Romney 330
Obama 209

Liberal Fraud won't help with these numbers.
