How Does Everyone Feel About A Possible Tax On Alcohol?

What if you had to pay an additional tax on your liquor like folks who smoke pay a tax on their cigarettes? A very interesting idea. And yes, this is an advertisement for the limited edition "44" Hennessy in celebration of President Obama's election. I know...I know...

I like the idea. While they are at it, they should tax junk food so maybe I won't be so quick to buy those cool ranch doritos :) As for the Hennessy ad, I have no words. That reminds me of the Hennessy room screen divider a friend gave that said "Hennessy celebrating black history month" Sad.

It won't stop me or those that I know from drinking. I'm a good tipper as well. Prices will be rounded up to the nearest nickle I think.

And as to Hennessy why shouldn't they cash in on the Obama phenomenon.

Our 'people' will buy it.

We can NEVER, just leave it at t-shirts and buttons!

Hey,in NYS that's just on more thing to get taxed on. Paterson already wants a tax on soda/pop, but not diet soda/pop (the infamous obesity tax) and going to the beauty salon (luxury tax), might as well add more to the list.
