Philadelphia's Disgusting DNC Double Standard on Alcohol
Liquor privatization enjoys wide support in Pennsylvania. According to a 2013 poll, 66 percent of voters said they would like to be able to purchase beer, wine, and liquor in private establishments outside of the PLCB's control.
Indeed, this measure enjoys wide bipartisan support. Fifty-four percent of Democrats, 70 percent of Republicans, and 70 percent of independents all said they would be more likely to vote for an elected official who unwinds the state alcohol cartel, as opposed to one who stands for the status quo.
Perhaps this special treatment of the DNC will nudge Pennsylvanians in the right direction to free up their alcohol industry, giving average citizens the same freedoms as entitled Democratic convention-goers. Or is that too fair and too consistent for today's Democratic Party?
