"Paid-For" ObamaCare

This is getting waaayyyyyy out of hand.

The U.S. Senate is considering a proposal that would dramatically raise what they call “lifestyle taxes” to pay for a huge federal health care program. Under this proposal you would be paying more for some of the simple things you enjoy, such as a soft drink and your favorite alcohol beverages. The proposal calls for a staggering increase in federal taxes on alcohol beverages of up to 229 percent!

Bad enough that old folks will have to hit the ice-floe.

Now the bastards will make it too expensive to knock back a couple ounces of Jack Daniels to go with that ice?

IIRC, the Second American Revolution was fought over whiskey taxes. No reason to abandon that tradition, is there?

Tradition is tradition.

Also, I'll have no problem brewing my own beer and distilling my own whiskey.
