There is something about this situation that just chokes me up.

  • Just another instance where federal government has waged war against small businesses and wants to increase taxes on the average American.

  • I agree. I don't smoke, and never have and never will. I cannot stand being near smokers since I have a child with severe asthma.

    But, this administration has been going at war with small businesses. You have this bill, plus the stipulation in the health care bill that is going to hurt small businesses as well.

  • I think it can be inferred that Reynolds and Phillip Morris have decided that businesses like U Roll 'Em are taking a chunk of their income away, and have decided to lobby for that legislation to be included in a bill.

    This is only a guess, but we've seen similar instances before. Small businesses don't contribute to campaigns like major, muli-million dollar companies can and will. It's unfortunate, but it's the way of the career politician.
