One comment to “Health Groups Laud Treatment of Tobacco in Trade Deal”

    Interesting story with its hints at fascinating politics and global complications. Its hard to imagine the tobacco industry allowed this to happen, so it must mean they figure their best defense is with Congress? The article singles out Democrats as the strongest objectors, which must mean Republicans see the agreement as helpful for business interests, but the tobacco industry seems centered in the south, now Republican states, which were formerly Democrat voting states. And the mention of 18,000 taxes. The world sure is complicated.
