The lawmakers in our country and some cabinet officials are having an intense debate regarding sin tax bill. One of the senator’s cut down the previously proposed incremental tax hikes on tobacco and alcohol products. In his sponsorship speech, the senator said he wants to make a reasonable, realistic and responsible taxation scheme.
However, reducing the tax on these products would only make it more accessible to those in the lower socio-economic classes thus the attempt to lower the number of smokers and drinkers would be minimal.
Anyway, whatever happens one thing i know for sure, they cannot stop the rich and famous here in our country to use the finest cigars because no matter how costly they are, they still can afford them.
