Copyright 1998 Star Tribune Star Tribune (Minneapolis, MN) Apri113,1998, Metro Edition SECTION: Pg. 8A Antitobacco movement putting vindictiveness ahead of results BYLINE: Jonathan Rauch DATELINE: Washington, D.C. BODY: So the tobacco lobby has decided it would rather fight than switch. On Wednesday, RJR Nabisco announced that it would no longer take part in congressional efforts to draft tough new tobacco legislation, and would oppose a bill by Sen. John MoCain,_the Arizona Republican, that enjoys bipartisan support. The other big companies quickly lined up behind RJR. Good for them. Making Big Tobacco seem like a sympathetic victim takes some doing, but Congress has managed it It's true that tobacco companies are no more benign than the product they produce, as mounting evidence shows. The companies' duty, however, is to their shareholders and customers. The government and the antismoking lobby must recognize that fundamental fact, and make reasonable demands. ln its zeal to reduce smoking - and, not incidentally, to raise billions in new tax money - Congress has overreached. The story began as a negotiation between the companies and state attorneys general. The resulting agreement, announced last June, gave the tobacco industry immunity from class-action lawsuits in exchange for almost $ 370 billion over 25 years in new cigarette taxes and various other antismoking measures. The agreement had its flaws. For smokers, it was regressive and punitive. Cigarette taxes hit the poor hardest, and smokers already more than pay the social costs of their habit (including state health-care costs that the attorneys general sued to recover). But the deal was, at least, a deal. What the Senate did is something else again. Congnss wanted tougher terms, which it was entitled to seek. But it effectively shut the industry out of the ,ti

it, by contrast, that the same government that has trouble getting the mail across town is somehow going to convince kids not to smoke? In all likelihood, the campaign will backfire by making the habit more alluring to teen-agers looking to rebel. • Subsidizing the enemy. Part of the agreement surely will result in big payoffs for trial lawyers. These are the same trial lawyers, incidentally, who are among the biggest contributors to left-wing candidates and campaign committees. Needless to say, it makes absolutely zero sense for the Republicans controlling Congress to finance their own destruaion (though they at least get credit for consistency, since they already are giving taxpayer money to labor unions, the American Association of Retired Persons, environmentalists, and other GOP opponents). • Destroying the rule of law. The tobacco legislation is the result of extortion that first began when state attorneys general, acting in concert with trial lawyers, sued tobacco companies seeking money to help pay for state health care costs. Their logic was bitarre: Some individuals, despite the well-known risks, are dumb enough to smoke. As a result, they sometimes get sick. Government, in its infinite wisdom, then decides to shield people from the consequences of their dumb decisions by paying for their health care. According to the tortured reasoning of the lawsuits, the tobacco companies should be held liable for the fact that both people and governments make silly decisions. By the same logic, the stktes should sue sellers of high-calorie food to recover the cost of obesity-related illnesses. Even though the cases lacked merits, tobacco companies felt they had to settle because state politicians could have continued the lawsuits indefinitely. • Undermining the first amendment. Although the politicians have not quite figured out how to avoid legal challenges, they fully intend to restrict the free speech rights of tobacco companies to advertise and market their wares. Needless to say, the first amendment is supposed to apply to everyone, not just those in the good graces of politicians. Indeed, the tobacco fight illustrates why the Founding Fathers were wise to include the Bill of Rights as part of the Constitution, thus ensuring that our rights would not be subject to the tyvranny of the majority. The upcoming legislation is a huge defeat for individual freedom. And although they are big losers as well, the tobacco companies do not deserve much sympathy. They attempted to strike a Faustian bargain. In exchange for giving hundreds of billions of dollars to the politicians, they hoped to get legal changes shielding them from endless lawsuits. Not surprisingly, the politicians are taking the money, but not delivering on the other half of the bargain. One is tempted to say the cigarette companies got what they deserved. They failed to fight on principle and thought they could enter into good-faith negotiations with the least trustworthy people in the country. Unfortunately, the rest of us will be the real losers. The politicians now have a precedent allowing them unlimited ability to restrict our freedom and control our lives. Daniel J. Mitchell a contributing writer at The Washington Times.
