Big Tobacco investing a lot in Colorado Election

They must be confident of a big payoff. The Proposition 72 advertising I get daily just for the printing and mailing of the fliers is a big hit.18 cents per flier. 3+ million voters. 600,000+ just for one mailing. 4 mailings a week, 2.4 million a week. posters and cards in stores, who knows, but they’re flooding the public visual perception. Over and over and over.
The backers don’t spend anything. Do you remember when was the last time you got anything Pro 72 mailed to you, saw on TV, anything? And any endorsements Big Cancer, Emphysema and Heart Disease Providers get, supposedly ad lib and unsolicited, use the same word-for-word scripted chant their Masters have taught them… Four Legs Good, Two Legs Baaaaaadd. They harp on 20% being immediately earmarked for stop smoking treatments.
Like, wow. Big Tobacco has spent more than the 325 million projected revenue from the pay-as-you-go tax. To have us read and hear mindless sheep bleating “Four Legs Good, Two Legs Baaad” Sweet baby Jesus, the bastards could just give the money to the state and pay less than the expected revenue increase. They must be running scared.
