General Views Of Tobacco Fields And Live Auction

A spectator leans on a flue-cured tobacco bale as a tobacco auction is conducted at the Old Belt Tobacco Sales warehouse in Rural Hall, North Carolina, U.S., on Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2013. President Barack Obama's proposal in April to raise federal excise taxes on cigarettes by about 93%, to $1.95 a pack, is not likely to gain political support, due in part to weak consumer spending amid sluggish wage growth in recent years.
