Re: Rampant Tobacco Speculation

Justin Katz

A few minutes ago, one of the local TV news anchors teased a segment on the tobacco money issue with the question, "How would the General Assembly balance the budget?" Because Lynch didn't emphasize potential, and because he could have examined the documents without a declaration about doing so, here's my speculation: Whether it was planned this way or not, Patrick Lynch might be lobbing the General Assembly an excuse to raise taxes.

I was going to add "or an excuse to cut spending," but I hit the "post" button accidentally before I'd stopped laughing.
