Had the measure passed some areas of Chicago suburbs would have been paying $10.00 a pack. Everyone is on the tobacco gravy train, just what exactly would replace these taxes? New taxes on liquor and fat foods. You might not smoke but there is something you do like to eat or drink that will be taxed heavily. The legislators don’t have the nerve to do a fair tax they would rather select certain commodities to balance their budgets. This indeed is a sad state of affairs.
