Minister: Smokers' treatment costs one tenth of taxes | Prague Monitor

Thanks to CAGE Canada for posting this on Facebook-

Prague, Aug 14 (CTK) - An analysis the Czech Health Ministry has made shows that Czech smokers pay in consumer taxes and VAT dozens of billions of crowns more than what their treatment costs, the Czech Television (CT) public broadcaster Sunday quoted Health Minister Leos Heger (TOP 09) as saying.

Heger said public finances would lose minimally 50 billion crowns without smokers.



...Gee, I wonder how much we smokers overpay for our "sins" here in America, the land of the free....
