Should We Extend the 'Sin Tax?'

The Indians enter the All-Star break on fire, sweeping Kansas City in Progressive Field, a ballpark built with taxes on smokers and drinkers. Was the 'sin tax,' passed to build the ballpark and an arena for the Cavaliers and extended to build a stadium for the Browns, a good deal? We'll talk about that Tuesday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas, and we'll consider a new plan to seek a sin-tax extension beyond 2015 to keep these sports places in good shape.
