Cue Whiskey Rebellion 2.0

Ugh. From USA Today:

Consumers in the United States may have to hand over nearly $2 more for a case of beer to help provide health insurance for all...

Beer taxes would go up by 48 cents a six-pack, wine taxes would rise by 49 cents per bottle, and the tax on hard liquor would increase by 40 cents per fifth. Proceeds from the new taxes would help cover an estimated 50 million uninsured Americans.

No end in sight. So, who wants to play the part of Tom the Tinker?
