Interesting article this morning out of Washington, D.C. indicating that the U.S. federal government is proposing to dramatically increase federal taxes on all forms of liquor (as well as on soft drinks made with sugar) in order to pay for health care for about 50 million uninsured Americans. The proposed taxes would add 49 cents to a bottle of wine and 48 cents to a six pack of beer.
