It's time to increase the federal cigarette tax

Tobacco use will kill nearly 500,000 Americans this year alone.

The evidence is clear:

  • Tobacco use is the #1 cause of preventable death in the U.S.
  • A 10% increase in cigarette cost is proven to lead to a 6% reduction in youth smoking
  • This year, tobacco use will result in more than $96 billion in health care costs

I call on Congress to choose people over tobacco companies and support a $1 increase in the federal cigarette tax.

Thank You!
