WTF - Cigarette companies sue FDA over health warnings?

Cigarette companies sue FDA over health labelsCigarette companies are suing to try to stop the latest government health warnings ordered for packs of cigarettes. - CBS News

Seriously??? WTF is the problem with having accurate warnings depicting what really happens.

Haase - Last Time I checked:

Smoking Deaths Cost U.S. $92 Billion a Year. Total costs, including health care, more than $167 billion yearly.

I think the "death stick" manufactures can afford a little dip in sales... unless the are REQUIRED to pay the $167 Billion (Why aren't they?).

Also, what of the loss to the families of a lifetime of lost income or the obvious "value of life"?
