He is raising the federal tax on cell phones too, will you and the OP be creating a thread and whining about that next? It's akin to a child getting an xbox for Christmas and complaining it only had the 20GB Hard Drive but ignoring the MSLive Gold subscription that came with it (your coffee analogy wasn't relevant IMO). American spoiled brat syndrome at its finest that also ignores the 95% of <250K bracket tax cut we received as well.Originally posted by: Skoorb
I do understand how income taxes differ from taxes on discretionary spending.Originally posted by: Jack Flash
If you make under $250,000 you will not see your taxes go up. The required taxes. The income tax.
If you CHOOSE to increase your tax burden by smoking cigarettes then that is your decision but the Obama administration is not going to increase your taxes based on your sub 250k income.
However, sin taxes are definitely in the group of "any form of tax increase" and "any of my taxes" [if I smoked].
Obama said if we make less than 250k/year we won't pay any more taxes. It was very plain and using a grade school level of language. Well, clearly many people making less than that will pay more.
