Government Should Cut Sin Taxes

The government in its coming budget should cut sin taxes - particularly for cigarettes and alcohol - now that it has decided to cut subsidies.

The government should not impose its judgement on the lifestyle of people and force diehard consumers to go for inferior versions and spoil their health, since the sin taxes are imposed in the first time to save these people from ill health.

Let the people die happily with their little pleasures, rather than compel them to join political marches just so that they can get a few more dollars of rebate to burn and spoil the environment.
