Don't blame the smokers...

...for wasting your tax dollars. Blame the weak-sister, sappy mentality that thinks the taxpayers have an obligation to pay for anyone's medical treatment. I find nothing more offensive about paying for an indigent smoker that I do about an indigent non-smoker. Neither of them has any right to expect me to pay for his or her healthcare. We seem to have forgotten, or simply refuse to accept that we're all reaching the same destination anyway. Why blow trillions of public dollars on people who are going to die anyway? What you do with your money, or your insurer will do with his money is up to the person writing the check. But stop wasting taxes on healthcare. Build better roads and bridges for the living. Reduce taxes. Retire the national debt. Build some new prisons and schools. LOTS of better priorities...
