Obama Signs Anti-Smoking Bill

Obama on Monday signed a landmark anti-smoking bill which he said will reduce the number of children who take up smoking and ultimately save American lives. 

The bill would give the federal government unprecedented authority to regulate tobacco. The law allows the regulatory Food and Drug Administration to reduce nicotine in tobacco products, ban candy flavorings and block labels such "low tar" and "light." Tobacco companies also will be required to cover their cartons with large graphic warnings. 

"Today ... the decades-long effort to protect our children from the harmful effects of tobacco has emerged victorious. Today change has come to Washington," Obama said. 

I'll believe that "CHANGE" has come to Washington when he quits firing Inspector Generals, when he starts working toward real bipartisanship, when he stops smoking, and when he stops lying through his teeth.
