Third time is a charm is the superstitious talisman that forms the operating procedure of the tobacco control industry.

Such is the case in the scheme to metastasize the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), increasing its scope by rasing the tax on cigarettes. The bill has been vetoed by the President, his veto upheld by the Congress. Anti-tobacco, as always, doesn’t get the message and continues to push the passage of the legislation. Anti-tobacco, of course, doesn’t give a hoot about uninsured children. It’s only purpose is to price smoking out of existence thereby boosting the market for pharmaceutical smoking cessation nostrums.
