(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.
OH the irony. Cigarette tax funding cancer research AND Californians voting it down!
