If the Federal Tax on Cigarettes deters Smoking, does the Federal Tax on Earnings deter Working

IF  FEDERAL AND STATES TAXES ON CIGARETTES IS ACTUALLY DETERING SMOKING AS MOST POLITICAL LEADERS CLAIM THEN ISN'T IT LOGICAL THAT FEDERAL AND STATE INCOME TAXES DETER WORKING TO SOME EXTENT.  PERHAPS THE PROBLEM WITH THE "INCOME TAX" IN JUST IN THE NAME, MAYBE WE SHOULD CALL IT "INVESTMENT FUNDING".  AFTER ALL REP. SHELIA JACKSON LEE, D-TEXAS HAS JUST SUGGESTED THAT WE START USING THE PHRASE "TRANSITIONAL LIVING FUND" INSTEAD OF "WELFARE".  SOME PHRASES ARE JUST TOO  DEGRADING ON PEOPLE.  ACCORDING TOM REP. LEE, THE DAYS OF CALLING A "SPADE A SPADE" ARE OVER. THANKS TO POLITIFAKE FOR THIS IMAGE.
