Kentucky Mommas? Can you tell me if you have heard this?

I just saw this on the news that the Kentucky Senate is going to vote on increases in taxes for Cigarettes and Alcohol. It is suppose to add 30 cents per pack of cigarettes, and a 6% increase of tax on alcohol. Anyone heard of this?

  • Basically it's medicaid for kids from families that make less than $80k/yr.
    The KY tax will be in addition to the $1/pack increase the feds are adding for SCHIP, so you probably won't even notice the 6% change in comparison.
