$653,600. Over half a million dollars. In the past 6 months, that's how much Big Tobacco has spent lobbying Wisconsin legislators behind closed doors in their attempt to kill anti-tobacco legislation and budget measures in our state.

This amount represents a huge increase over what Big Tobacco spent over the same period last Budget season ($259,101). What do you think - has Big Tobacco chosen Wisconsin as its next battleground?

Crazy how much those tobacco companies can spend. And this is just Wisconsin. And all those don't even begin to calculate all fo the things that are done outside the lobby report - campaign contributions, all the propaganda they have in gas stations....
