Default So Oregon wants to raise the per barrel tax from $2 to $47?

That would mean about a $4 rise in a 6-pack. I HOPE peopel are fighting this.

The reason they say is that they have not raise the price since the 70's.

Here in Wisconsin the tax is $1 per barrel and has been that way since the 60s. While our governor is making drastic cutbacks because he screwed us all over he has said he will not touch the beer barrel tax.

A drunk Wisconsin is a happy Wisconsin. (he did not say those exact words)

the liberal way to make every issue insolvent is to raise taxes, dont you know that?
despite every single economist saying that to solve issues with economics, lower taxes, they do the opposite and things get worse. youd think theyd have learned this seeing as how theyve been doing this for about 60 years now.

Hmm, how do you/they come up with the $4/6 pack method?

A barrel is about 3968oz and a 6pack is 72oz. Meaning that you can get a little more than 55 6packs per barrel.

A $45/barrel increase to seem to be about $0.82/6 pack increase, not $4.

Looking at the Virginia code, it looks like the tax here is $7.9515 per barrel. You read that right. It is specifically "Twenty-five and sixty-five hundredths cents per gallon per barrel".

It gets even weirder:

"Two and twenty-two one hundredths mills per ounce per bottle on bottles of more than twelve ounces each. "

A mill is 1/10 of a cent.

lets not make this a liberal vs. conservative issue.

Anyway, a quick google search shows that the sponsor, Rep Cannon, is a kid and probably doesnt fully understand the issues with something like this. he just sees that the tax hasnt followed inflation for 3 decades and sees it as a way to increase revenue....another idea that the Ore legislature has on the agenda to increase revenue is to have every car equipped with a GPS so they can tax on a per mile basis...

In these dark times for states, they are going to come up with some kooky ideas to drum up revenue. Even here in KS, which is primarily conservative, they are looking at all sorts of ways of increasing fees and such. Nearly every state this year is going to have a budget shortfall! Prepare for increased taxes, OR reduced services...

I think there are more than 12 six-packs in a barrel.
