Cigarette Taxes!
By Bill Ayers Jr.


August 22, 2005

I think it is a disgrace that our senior citizens are being 'back-taxed' for cigarettes's bought over the internet before such legislation came into effect. They should not be taxed in any way! They already paid their dues, in more ways than one!

Senators & Representative, LISTEN UP! Leave our senior citizens ALONE on this! If you don't, then you are no better than scam artists preying on the old.

Very Sincerely,
