    I feel your pain. I agree with ChaoticGemini. While in PA, be sure to fill up your gas tank and buy any other things you need while you're there. Think of it as supporting freedom.

If my math is correct, that would add an additional $2.50 or so tax to each can (or $25 bucks more per roll over state taxes). Definitely time to think about quitting.

                    I don't believe this has been voted on yet, and the fact that it includes cigars....well, the politicians don't want to monkey around with them, lol. I'll do some checking on this one though.


                    Edit...see below:

                    "Jul 21, 2011 - Introduced in Senate. This is the original text of the bill as it was written by its sponsor and submitted to the Senate for consideration. This is the latest version of the bill currently available on GovTrack."

                      Well we all remember how we thought the PACT act wouldn't pass. This one if you notice was included in the IDEA Funding Act with Individuals with Disabilities Education Act funding, so you know it will easily pass.

                        Yeah I noticed that, and I despise how they piggyback shit like this. We'll just have to wait and see....or be proactive and call your respective congressmen and remind them an election year is approaching!

                            I would also use the POVOX link to send a letter to your congressmen, and then post it on Twitter. I'd say millions of people don't even know this bill is being considered.

                              I registered with POVOX and sent a little note to the folks in Congress. I also alerted the folks at ECF as part of the bill relates to Electronic Cigarettes.

                              Other Tobacco Products- Any product not otherwise described under this section that has been determined to be a tobacco product by the Food and Drug Administration through its authorities under the Family Smoking Prevention and Control Act shall be taxed at a level of tax equivalent to the tax rate for cigarettes on an estimated per use basis as determined by the Secretary.’.
                              What the above means is that e-liquid, which is now classified as a tobacco product by the FDA, would be taxed the same as cigarettes. There is also some lawyer talk farther down the bill about imports that I don't have a clue about. Perhaps someone who speaks both lawyereze and English can clue us in.
