Corzine's proposed liquor tax increase another nail in our coffin | dailyrecord.com | Daily Record



The taxes on a bottle of wine or a 6 pack of beer already are about 50% of the cost.

Corzine needs to go. When he goes after my beer, he has gone too far

I don't really mind the tax. I am not a heavy drink, more of a light social one. Maybe this will help curb the drinking problem I see in our society. I know when cigs hit $5.50 a pack, I quit that week! The more alcohol is taxed, the less I want to drink. Then again, its different for every person.

I much rather see marijuana legalized and taxed to hell, but thats not going to happen. How many people die a year from alcohol related deaths? Now how about marijuana related deaths.

Ok... take your rantings about marijuana elsewhere...

And what drinking problem do you see? just because a handful of people are stupid doesnt mean that everyone should be punished.

Why is it the government's job to legislate behavior?

Why should marijuana be illegal?

For the people who like to have a six pack around the house, for company or for their own pleasure, you want it you pay for it.

As a child with wounds because of alcholic parents, I wouldn't mind if it was made so expensive that people wouldn't buy it, would save alot of lives, drinking, driving and some of the stupid acts that drunks do.

How anyone can defend this is beyond me. Especially those who want to impose their views on alcohol on everyone else.

As long as the money is being spent "for the children", the more we give to Trenton, the better.
