Tax payers should pay for my gambling addiction
 | 
World ///fuck 
To have a gambling addiction is a disease, like other diseases it has its side effects. Some of these side effects are: - economy in chambles - you become a pathological liar - depression I, a former gambling addict consider that You, tax payers, should pay for my debts. For example if I were to chose to start smoking to the point where I would get lung cancer the state would happily pay me for operations and new lungs, and a new lung costs about $200 000 which are about my debts. I who have my illness at the moment may live in misery the rest of my life, why do you get one disease financed but not the other?

as much as this is a bait, you still got a point. fat people and smokers get treatments on the general populations cost. its not fair

But in Germany when you pay 5€ (even tho they are more expansive but that makes it easier) for a pack than 3,75€ are taxes (2,95€ tobaccotax and 0,8€ value added tax). So you can imagine that most of these lungcancer smokers have already payed their threatment long before the cancer is there.
2018-10-15 15:00
there are multiple ways of calculating the costs, and all in all i think costs are higher than what tobacco tax brings in

probably, dont know. Lets say 4€ tax per pack over 10 years will be around 15k taxes. Than you also have to calculate the people who never got cancer even though they smoked alot. All in all I guess you are right (don't know what cancer threatment costs) and it doesnt pay itself so I take that back.

Smoking causes other problems than just cancer
2018-10-15 17:35
pretty sure the sheer amount of illnesses that are caused/influenced by smoking completely dwarf the income by tobacco taxes. But you still need to treat those people so I guess all you can do is raise tobacco tax even higher. But then you should probably start taxing all kings of unhealthy shit like sugar and then things get weird, difficult topic.
2018-10-15 18:37
You should be taking account the environment problems that smoking causes.
2018-10-15 22:14
Does that really play a role when you compare it to traffic pollution etc?
2018-10-16 12:16
Ofc not, but it´s still a factor.
2018-10-16 21:40
And smokers tend to die young. It will cost less to let them rot and give som cancer treatment than paying +15yrs retirement money
2018-10-15 15:06
usually they only live 3 years less than non smokers, but also work 3-4 years less because of health issues. this means the system saves money while not as much is being paid.

I know this is a bait, but cancer treatments are vital for the smoker, otherwise they will die. If you have crippling debt you can still manage and not die

Acting tough??? By the sounds of this thread I are agreeing with America’s health care. Y should I have to pay a smokers medical bill y should I have to pay a drunk drivers medical bill y should I pay for a guy to get a sex change y should I have to pay for the kid that tried jumping his skate board down 10 steps y should I have to pay for the guys that got into a fight at a bar. How about y should I have to pay for the kid that drops out of college or have to pay for the kid who got a diploma and 5 years later still got no job or y should I pay for a kid to go to school when I bust my ass all day at work and this spoiled brat will be living with mommy and daddy while he goes to school for the next 6 years. Why should I have to pay for any of that???? In America u don’t 😘

If you have a gambling addiction you should get help instead of post on the forums about how someone should bail you out.
2018-10-15 18:34
The equivalant to tax payers paying for your addiction would be to pay for the cigarettes of people who smoke which is not the case. nt
