Rebuttal to Argument Against Proposition 28

Arguments on this page are the opinions of the authors and have not been checked for accuracy by any official agency.

None of the money collected under Prop 10 has been spent . To say Prop 28 "slashes" spending is deceitful. Prop 10 hasn't helped a single child. Will Prop 10 ever help a child? No!

Those who plan to receive the Prop 10 money are shocked that we want to derail this gravy train before it leaves the station.

Cigarettes Cheaper! started Prop 28 to stand up for our customers. Through Prop 28, we advance a basic American principle: do good.

Prop 10 has been a bonanza for Cigarettes Cheaper! because more customers came to us for a cheaper price. Prop 10 produces more than $10,000 per week in extra profit for us. Financially, we may lose more from Prop 28 than some of the grant-seeking associations who oppose it. Still, Prop 28 is the right thing to do .

What's best for children? It's too simple to decide that smoking is bad so taxes are good. To repeal a fundamentally flawed program , to say parents must be responsible for raising their own children, to stop the seed money for a huge "government knows best" program, VOTE YES on Prop 28.

Yes, this will lift a heavy tax burden from our customers. More important than that, please decide what's best for children and taxpayers. Prop 10 must be repealed before millions of dollars are wasted--and young lives are changed for the worse. Please study this carefully, then VOTE YES on Prop 28.
