Proposal To Raise The Federal Cigarette Tax

President Obama’s proposal to raise the federal cigarette tax 94 cents.  Why and what would the money fund?  The increase in the tax would fund low and middle income children in preschool.  Make our children smarter, more likely to succeed in school, and hopefully decrease those smoking.  Sounds like a winner, check out the story.
