Protectionism is not a Constitutional Principle

Last week, the National Beer Wholesalers Association President Craig Purser, who happens to be a former colleague of mine, had an article in The Washington Times, suggesting that the alcohol bill on Capitol Hill (H.R. 1161) serves constitutional principles. Although we haven’t chatted in years, I like Craig. He’s a super-nice guy, and he surely works hard to serve his industry. But this is one issue where we certainly disagree. I have addressed this issue on my blog at, in the Daily Caller, and in a CEI study. Today, I address it again in The Washington Times.  Check it out here.
