It actually wasn't an attempt at controlling drunk driving, it was an attempt to control drinking altogether, and it had ridiculous and astonishing public support from all sectors of the public.
This bill is not remotely similar. If it were to pass, there would be a revolution that would make the Occupy movement look pathetic. We wouldn't even have to wait for it to be declared unconstitutional, or even for the resulting economic tank. Within a day of it taking effect the resulting riots would result in either the government overturning it, or being violently overthrown.
