Do you think the state should raise the cigarette tax to pay for health care reforms?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on December 14, 2007
“Yes. People who smoke are going to be using the health care system more in the long run, so it is benefiting them. And any incentive to quit is a good one.”
“I think so, because it stops people from smoking, and at least those people who do smoke will be helping others while hurting themselves.”
“No. I think it’s already too high for the smokers anyway.”
“ think it sounds like a good plan because of the effect smoking has on your health. If that money is used for health care or medical research, it will be money well spent.”
