Does your SO drink beer?

upon a novel way to keep their spending binge rolling -- and leave American taxpayers with the hangover.

Under a Senate proposal, Congress would raise the federal excise tax on beer by 145 percent to more than $3 a case.

Uncle Sam also would snatch an additional $7 on a case of wine -- a staggering increase of 233 percent and an additional 20 percent on hard liquor sales.

  • We both drink beer on occasion. I can live without it so this doesnt bother me all that much although it is a little absurd.
    It bothers me more that a company can double the price of an item because they know that you NEED it, such as anything for babies, vitamins, toiletries....etc.

  • Very rarely. Definitley not as much as when we first met. The last time I bought him a case was 1.5 or 2.5 YEARS ago (I seriously can't remember which) and I finally finished it off about a month ago, cooking with it. I think the last 8 cans I cooked with. Anymore we'd rather share a bottle of cheap wine, or keep a bottle of decent harder stuff on hand. I'm not supposed to drink but occasionally have a little, and he drinks less than I do anymore.

  • He drinks beer, but only buys it maybe once a month? So not a big deal.
