Smaller government, more tax revenue, cheaper booze . . . .

1908RandallCountyCourthouseCanyonTexas907TJnsn The New York Times says Pennsylvania is looking a privatizing the liquor business in the state. The proposal to get the state out of selling booze (it currently runs some 600 stores statewide) could net the Keystone State $2 billion in immediate revenue, cut several thousand state jobs, and open up a new source of tax revenue from the private sellers.

The Times doesn’t mention the fact, but it might also cut liquor prices for consumers. And allow Pennylvanians to experience real Texas bourbon (left).
