I am a smoker. I don’t like football. I struggle to pay my bills and run out of cash before payday. I would like to remind everyone that taxes on tobacco are very regressive. The tax I pay on cigarettes is inappropriately high.
Thanks to a Ryan Co./Vikings/City of Minneapolis/State of Minnesota scheme, I am now expected to shoulder the burden of this new stadium. I am calling foul and would like to open a discussion.
Can we please stop steamrolling politics and be honest, if only for a minute?
