California cigarette tax remains too close to call

(CNN) - California's vote on a controversial cigarette tax remained too close to call Wednesday morning, although votes counted so far suggest it was narrowly rejected.

With all precincts reporting, the tally was 50.8% against the proposal and 49.2% in support of it, according to the California Secretary of State website.

    This wasn't about cigarettes or about cancer research. I don't smoke cigarettes and I do contribute for cancer research. This was about another tax. Government greed is out of control. Families have been watching spending for 4 years. Businesses have been watching spending for 4 years. It's time for government to be as careful with our money as we are. That has not happened yet. This vote was a clear message to state and federal governments along with several other results. Show some responsibility with the taxes we already pay first.
