More Government Expansion in Kansas In The Form Of Tobacco Taxes

Kansas Governor Mark Parkinson is once again asking lawmakers to increase tobacco taxes by as much as 58%. Parkinson says the money would be used for health care programs or the general fund. Right now smokers pay 79 cents per pack in taxes. By raising the tax to $1.34, KSCW Inc. claims that the tax could bring in as much as $88 million next year. In reality, the tax hike ploy is nothing more than a way to expand government and Kansas cannot afford it.
