    Note the reference to "Joe Six-pack" by mike Zapler. Then check out $0.30/can tax that Beall (D) San Jose, wants to levy on those that drink beer. His rationalization is -- it worked on smokers, why not beer drinkers?


    Higher state tax on beer?
    ASSEMBLYMAN BEALL PROPOSES BIG INCREASE

    SACRAMENTO - Joe Six-pack will have to pay a lot more to get his buzz on if Assemblyman Jim Beall has his way.

    The San Jose Democrat on Thursday proposed raising the beer tax by $1.80 per six-pack, or 30 cents per can or bottle. The current tax is 2 cents per can. That's an increase of about 1,500 percent.

    Beall said the tax would generate $2 billion a year to fund health care services, crime prevention and programs to prevent underage drinking and addiction.
