Why not go after alcohol for a change?

I am not a smoker, but with all the goings-on about raising taxes per pack and all the letters being written about it, I would like to make a suggestion: Why not raise the taxes on beer, wine and liquor? I am sure more innocent people have died from drunken drivers than secondhand smoke.

The government always is raising taxes on everything else -- land, homes, gas, cigarettes, etc. Why not alcoholic beverages for a change?

Wonder why our congressman don't want to raise liquor taxes?
