Hmmm...a lot of noise about burgers and fries designed to affect the folk who indulge and enjoy them; yet another tax coming to the people who indulge and enjoy a smoke...I suppose it's about time they increased the taxes on alcohol so can't get too excited about that. But, somehow, fifty Centrum twice a day doesn't make the golden years seem very palatable. No steak, no glass of wine, no cigarette...might have to rethink my plans for my centennial.

"That additional $49.61 is a, um, 1,900% tax increase, folks. But notice that the article does not list anywhere the political affiliation of any of the bill's sponsors. They are all Democrats."

It's implied LOL

Obama and company would love to be able to get away with this sort of extortion.

And who this really hurts is not the Wall Street fatcat, but the everyday working SOB who wants to have a few brews after work.

Why don't they get this?

First porn, now beer. The two things that make life bearable !
