From my Father's blog at http://www.publicpulse.blogspot
"Now that the MI Republicans have weighed in for the summer gas tax holiday, it's time to propose a more meaningful alternative:
Summer Beer Tax Holiday
Seeing that no one can afford to take a vacation anyhow, why not a roll back on the beer tax? or maybe just a roll back on beers made in Michigan? Say Yes to Bells, Founders, New Amsterdam, Shorts and all the other fantastic breweries that are serving up an incredible range of Michigan beer!"
Granted, I think he meant "New Holland" not "Amsterdam," but wouldn't that make this, like, the Best Summer Ever? And what a way to stimulate some great local businesses.
And, P.S. My dad's blog is a great page for anyone interested in Michigan politics who hasn't the energy to root actual news out of the GRPress.
