I agree with this tax. I also believe that people who smoke NOT be covered for illnesses resulting from tobacco use such as lung disease, heart disease, cancers, high blood pressure, etc. Any disability claims filed due to illness as a result of smoking should be denied. Same goes for obesity as a result of over eating and not exercising, (excluded should be medical and genetic reasons for obesity). Also should be included in this category , people who are non compliant and then they suffer even more complications of their disease. One example is an amputation of a foot of a NON COMPLIANT diabetic patient. His surgery should NOT be covered by his health insurance. THESE are the people who are the main cause of rising health care costs for the rest of the nation although not the only cause but a significant cause.
