In case you missed it, a lot of things have been slipped into the spending bill that’s expected to pass Congress this week, including $25 million for the Centers for Disease Control and the National Institutes of Health to study gun violence and $500 million for border security (in Jordan).

Also sneaked into the bill is a provision raising the minimum age to buy tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, to 21 nationally.

That seems high, considering that there are people lobbying for lowering the voting age to 13 or 14 (no, really); just this year, 125 House Democrats voted to lower the national voting age to 16.

Carol Roth wants to see some consistency when it comes to considering someone an “adult” in the United States.

Good luck though finding the right number with the current generation just coming out of college and wanting the government to be their parent forever.
