A Dime A Drink

Maybe I shouldn’t say much about this, because it doesn’t affect me (because I don’t drink), but I’m entirely in favor of increasing Maryland state taxes on alcohol. Look, the state tax on liquor hasn’t been raised since 1955, and the one on beer and wine since 1972. Not only is it about time, but if it helps the state avoid things like firing firefighters and other public employees (like, say, the teachers in my kids’ schools), then we’d be crazy not to do it.
