It has, that's why my title included "Gee", as in "aw shucks". The fact that it's been going on for decades and democrats see a raising of the cigarette pack tax as having no effect on behavior is the point. It's a little game they play to give them cover for more spending, "hey look! if we raise the tax $2 a pack it will bring in 400 million!" Yet it never does because people aren't carp, but by then they've already spent the "expected revenue" 10 times over.
