Alcohol tax: A dime is a dime is a dime
Normally I would find the topic "Alcohol Excise Tax," like most tax issues, confusing. If my father had not been killed by a drunk driver last year I am pretty sure this subject would not interest me in the least. Unfortunately it's a topic I know only too well.

What would you pay to save your mother, sister, or daughter if they were diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer and had no insurance to cover treatment? What should the state contribute to save the lives of Alaska women in exactly that situation? Is $175,000 too much to pay to help dozens of women stay alive? The legislature has an opportunity to help Alaska women get treatment for cancer by opting into a new Medicaid provision made available to states last year by a unanimous vote of the U.S. Senate.
