Subject: smoking cigarettes
In reply to: Irish Jim 's message, "Dumb as rocks president shuts down keystone pipeline" on 07:03:06 01/22/21 Fri

Do you remember back when they demonized smokers. That if everybody quit smoking in surance premiums would drop. So look at how they taxed cigarettes, what's a pack cost in NYC now ??? Then they legalize pot and make more smokers.
WHY did they do that ???--- because--- they saw all the tax money they were losing by people quitting cigarettes. ( they-- i mean democrats). OOOH I am sure insurance companies made or saved billions when people started to quit, but was any of that windfall passed on ?? Now 1,6 billion in gross wages just for Keystone, what is the govt gonna have to shell out for unemployment ? and where is the govt gonna go to make up for the income tax these Keystone workers are no longer paying.
