Re: “Defiant Rep. Matthew Hill Defends Voting Down Wine in Supermarkets

I'm not sure on most people's opinion regarding the bill, but I for one, am against it. Allowing wine to be sold in store is going to greatly undercut the profits of the stores who rely on the profits of selling wine. For example, the wine store next to the Kroger of Belle Meade will probably be put out of business because of this bill because they will lose plenty of customers to the cheaper prices of Kroger (who will assuredly undercut the prices in order to push their small business competitor into bankruptcy).

Additionally, I don't trust grocery stores as much as I do wine stores to not sell alcohol to under aged people. The bill itself is only supportive to big business, and they don't need any more advantages from the government. Good on Matthew Hill for not letting the Representatives simply fast track the bill before the people at the hearing have ample opportunity to hear the arguments that had been prepared for the meeting.

This isn't some conspiracy by Rep. Hill, it's just following a philosophy of thorough and meticulous debate in order to pass a bill that is desired by the people.

When you measure twice and cut once you are much less likely to make a mistake.

P.S. the argument of all the small business owners against this bill is that while they may make more money over the next few years. They guarentee that the long term consequences of this bill will grossly cut into the potential profits they could be making without this bill.
