Florida Will Smoke Its Way To A Better Future
Politicians love to make analogies between their decisions and those decisions that "hard-working families" must make. So how can we make sense of this one? Joe and Jane Six Pack turn down the raise their bosses would give them so that they can dig into their college and retirement funds to pay for their living expenses?
Nope, that's doesn't compute. So let's add another variable to the analogy: a tobacco lobbyist who's willing to pay Joe and Jane as long as they screw over their neighbors. Yep, now it fits!
