    It truly baffles me why legislators are so reluctant to raise the tax. Tobacco lobbyists perhaps? Talk about special interests.

    Idaho ranks 42nd in the nation on cigarette taxes. We could raise the tax by a dollar and it would still be less than the national average. The tax on beer has been unchanged since 1961 and the wine tax has never been raise since it's inception in 1971. Taxing these items seem like a simple solution to a tough economic problem. We are not talking about taxing food or housing or taking more taxes out of paychecks. We are taking about alcohol and tobacco. Oh yeah, and for the purpose of full disclosure I am an ex-smoker and certainly enjoy a glass of wine with dinner. Solve the problem. Raise the tax and use it for something other than the building fund. Like health.
