Read your official ballot pamphlet carefully and you will see Prop 86:
  • Allocates less than 10% of the tax revenues toward helping cigarette, cigar and smokeless tobacco consumers quit or keeping kids from starting.
  • Gives the largest share of money – almost 40% – to huge hospital corporations, many of which are funding the campaign for the new tax. These funds pay for non tobacco-related care they already provide, not treatment of smoking-related illnesses.
  • Lets HMOs pocket millions of taxpayer dollars.
  • Exempts hospitals from antitrust laws, letting them collude to fix prices and limit competition.
  • Allows continued overbilling of the uninsured – at taxpayers' expense.
  • Has very little accountability to taxpayers for how and where the money is spent.
  • Increases our deficit.
  • Increases crime.
  • Is unfair! Taxes cigarette, cigar and smokeless tobacco consumers to pay for programs that have nothing to do with smoking.
