alcohol tax

not so sure how i feel about this.  in one way, it bothers me that ordinary working folks are asked to pay more in alcohol taxes while millionnaires are still getting away with low tax rates. in another way, i suppose it's good for getting people to drink less.

it's similar to the soft drink tax, which i am not opposed to. hmmm. it's funny that the people who are against said tax are predominantly right-leaning, less-government types, but who are also lower income, who should be rooting for the government to raise taxes on rich people, hence, they should be left-leaning.
