Alert - Federal Cigarette Tax Increase Proposed!
The White House's budget proposal to Congress includes an increase in the Federal excise tax on cigarettes of $0.94 and an increase in other tobacco products taxes. The Obama administration raised cigarette and other tobacco taxes by 158 percent just three years ago. Contact your legislator and say enough is enough!
Contact Your Member of Congress Today and Tell Them:
- As middle-income Americans struggle to make ends meet in a slow economy, this is not the time for another tax increase.
- Cigarette taxes are regressive. This increase, if enacted, would clearly impact middle class and lower–income citizens the hardest.
- Using tobacco excise taxes to pay for federal programs is fiscally irresponsible.
