    So a “sins” of the father (Prop 71) argument was used to “prop” up the profits of Big Tobacco? The reason for the similarity in structure was that the proponents of Prop 29 thought Californian voters would be averse to a general revenues tax. Seems they can’t win, especially when outspent 10 to 1 by an industry that couldn’t give a damn about the health of its customers. I’m sure if Prop 29 had suggested the revenues be spent on reducing child poverty in the State that the advertising would have vilified poor kids for not getting a job.
