Wisconsin Heresy? Propose Beer Tax Hike
Posted by Bob Skilnik on May 14, 2007
Last week, I was bitching about Democratic legislators in Oregon who wanted to raise the state’s beer tax.
Guess what? This time it’s Wisconsin, and true to form, once again its Democratic politicians who are leading the charge. Democratic Rep. Terese Berceau of Madison (figures) says that the proposed increase would raise the tax on a six-pack from 3.6-cents to 18-cents. Overall, it would cost beer drinkers between $40 million and $48 million more a year, she said.
