    I got this to today:

    "The U.S. Senate will shortly vote on a proposal to expand the state children’s health insurance program by $35 billion.
    Funding is to be provided solely through higher tobacco taxes.
    The tax increases on cigars are particularly punitive, as all large cigars would be subject to a tax of 53.13% of the manufacturer’s selling price. This is an increase of 156.4% over the current rate! And, while the current tax on cigars is capped so no cigar pays more than $.05 in federal taxes, the proposed legislation would increase the cap by 20,413% (not a typo) to $10 per cigar! The combination of these two factors will result in a dramatic increase in cigar prices in the U.S. and many cigar companies are likely to go out of business.

    We urge you to phone the offices of your own U.S. Senators (see list below), give them your name and address and ask that they vote to oppose the punitively high cigar tax increases in the state children’s health insurance legislation.
    Please call only your own U.S. Senators because Senators respond to the concerns their constituents, not to those who live in other states. "

    Now, I know that there are alot of anti-smokers everywhere and that smoking is not a good thing but WTF! Isn't this kind of shit the reason the USA exists. The Founding Fathers went to war over taxes and tariffs on their fu*king tea! Anybody who subscribes to this shit can't see past his freaking nose. First they come for the smokers, then the drinkers, then mothers who breast feed in public, then the red-headed drivers (cause statistics show they are 2000 times more likely to have an accident)...

    This is why the second amendment is there cause, mark my words, we're going to need it one day.
