We all want to help those who want to stop smoking, but

PROP 56 IS NOT WHAT IT APPEARS TO BE.

Prop 56 is a $1.4 billion “tax hike grab” by insurance companies and other wealthy special interests to dramatically increase their profits by shortchanging schools and ignoring other pressing problems.

PROP 56 ALLOCATES

JUST 13%

OF NEW TOBACCO TAX MONEY TO

HELP SMOKERS OR STOP KIDS
FROM STARTING

If we are going to tax smokers another $1.4 billion per year, more should be dedicated to helping them stop and keeping kids from starting. Instead, most of the $1.4 billion in new taxes goes to health insurance companies and other wealthy special interests, instead of where it is needed.
