More tax on the "poor"

According to WOAI 1200am in San Antonio, a DEMOCRAT state senator up in Austin is advocating raising the cigarette tax by $1 a pack.

Yep as most people know, the majority of smokers are in the lower education and income brackets.

I guess as long as it's for the "good" of the people- and advanced by a Dem, it's ok to target the poor for a tax increase. But where are the advocates for the poor? The ones who always jump on the bandwagon when a Republican wants to change ANYTHING about the tax structure when it affects the "poor".
