Gov. Pat Quinn wants to tax cigarettes another $1 per pack - Would push the price to $10.00 a PACK! Over $7.00 of it being city/county/state taxes


Illinois Governor Pat Quinn believes that the change in financing Illinois’ health care system should include a $1-per-pack tax hike on cigarettes.

In the past, Quinn has claimed that the Medicaid program in Illinois will collapse if the state doesn’t find a way to come up with $2.7 billion.

Besides the tax on smokers, the governor wants to cut $1.35 billion by eliminating programs which include a discount prescription program for seniors and stiffening eligibility requirements for health insurance which would take thousands of persons off the current insurance in the state.

Regarding the seniors’ prescription, Quinn wants to eliminate the Illinois Cares Rx Program. This program currently allows about 180,000 senior citizens and disabled persons to receive discounted medical prescriptions.

Regarding the stricter requirements for health insurance, services such as group psychotherapy classes, chiropractic adult care, occupational therapy, physical therapy, as well as adult speech, hearing, and language therapy will be curtailed or reduced.

This Quimm might be asshole of the century. Smokers and drinkers need a tax advocate since they are always first in line to get taxed. Hint to Lefty Mongtard politicians: when you finally make smoking illegal you won't be able to tax it anymore.

Why do these ass douche politicians always want to try to balance the budget on the backs of smokers? Smokers are already paying more than their share. Why don't we start to cut benefits to all the minorities who have been abusing the system for generations!!! Quinn you are a lazy piece of shit,if u just look u can find alot to cut from the inflated budget. I know u don't want to upset ur black inlaws but its about time they got off the tit. The only reason u r the governor is NOBODY wanted to touch that hotseat u dolt,they set u up to fail moron.
