Think tank: Mich. should raise beer tax to ease budget problems

State officials should consider raising the tax on beer for the first time since the 1960s as part of an effort to ease the state’s budget problems, according to [John Bebow, executive director of The Center for Michigan, a think tank in the Ann Arbor area].

I hereby postulate that Mr. Bebow is a snobby wine drinker and further propose that the tax on wine be increased at a rate three times that of a beer tax. Obviously, he can afford it working in a think tank (cha ching) in the Ann Arbor (CHA ching) area (CHA CHING).

And how, you may ask, did The Center for Michigan come up with this brilliant tax plan? Perhaps they’re playing to their base: check out the steering committee.
