At Least They Waited Until After the Super Bowl...


Oregon is currently considering increasing the tax on beer by 1,900%, with the intention that the tax revenue could help pay for drug and alcohol treatment programs offered by the state. Although the bill's sponsor voices a willingness to compromise, I can't help but be reminded of the federal tobacco tax increase just a few weeks ago to help fund the S-CHIP program.
