"The majority of the people want this. There has never been a scientific poll showing support for the state store system. I sincerely wonder how every Democrat, supposedly the party of the people, can vote against what the people want." - WillAcker

...And, I "sincerely wonder" how-it-is you "conservatives" are so quick to generalize...based on ZIP.

I'm a Dem, who's lived outside Williamsport (specifically, the West), over a 28-year period. I've experienced NUMEROUS states that have privately-owned liquor-stores, and see NO reason it can't work, here.

Gee Francine I find it hard to believe, with all of the real problems facing our state, this would be "political suicide". The caucus that wakes up in the morning thinking about how we buy our booze is rather small compared to the number that worry about education and repairing our infrastructure. At least I would hope so. This is just a smokescreen to cover the Governors impotence when it comes to solving the real issues. You could not have read the bill or you would realize it would be insane to pass it. Lucky the senate will hold hearings and expose it for what it is.
