What’s even funnier is that some of the tax on tobacco is going to anti-tobacco programs.
It gets even funnier: The US gov’t subsidizes tobacco growers.
From 1995 through 2011, the federal government paid out $1.329 billion in subsidies to the tobacco industry. In 2011 alone, taxpayers shelled out $191,218,926 in tobacco subsidies to 58,350 recipients, according to figures provided by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.

The majority of all taxes go toward “Administrative Fees”. I call B.S.
Federal tax on earnings also encourages working because you have to work more to attain a given lifestyle.
J-Bird, that’s ludicrous. For example, Social Security administrative costs are less than 1%. You’d also have to believe for every infantryman the Army hires at least one administrator.
