The federal alcohol tax has not been raised since 1991, and as Republicans attempt to cut taxes without exploding the deficit, some experts argue a modest tax increase would generate some $70.4 billion in revenue over 10 years. It would also discourage people from drinking as much, averting as many as 6,000 deaths per year. But others argue the alcohol tax is nothing more than a sin tax, and people should be allowed to drink their beer in peace. What do you think? 🍺
