I was shocked to go to their op-ed section to see this headline
States spend anti smoking money on everything but
You're kidding me right? Politicians, especially the "progressives" that brokered this deal, would never bait and switch the American public right?
All together, the states took in over 22 billion in tobacco money and spent a whopping 590 million in anti smoking programs.
To make matters worse, Ohio (along with MI, RI, and WV) sold their portion to a private company for 5 billion (even though the receipts were projected to be over 10 billion during a 24 year period).
Once again, I throw it out to all those "progress" types. How do you defend this? You call this a government of progress?
