A cigarrette tax could cover some of the extra Universal Health Care costs

  • Oregon legislation in August, 2007 - "Oregon adopts plan for universal health access". August 6, 2007 - "Democratic lawmakers also are asking voters to approve a constitutional amendment boosting the cigarette tax by 84.5 cents to provide health insurance for children up to age 19. The tax, part of Kulongoski's Healthy Kids Plan, would increase the cigarette levy to $2.025 and raise $152.7 million by 2009 to cover 117,000 uninsured kids. The vote split along party lines, so House Democrats didn't reach the 60% majority required for tax increase passage."
