FREEDOMWORKS Foundation releases analysis of new legislation aimed at thwarting wine shipments

Introduced by Rep. William Delahunt (D-Mass.), the legislation is a clear example of economic protectionism designed to shore up the monopoly profits of beer, wine, and spirits wholesalers, much to detriment of vintners, craft brewers, small distillers, and consumers, who will face higher prices and fewer choices.
“It seems that cronyism is still alive and well in Washington, D.C.,” said Wayne T. Brough, chief economist and vice president for research at FreedomWorks Foundation.
