Via Breitbart:Influential US lawmakers on Thursday called for levying a new income tax to pay for the war in Afghanistan, warning its costs pose a mortal threat to efforts like a sweeping health care overhaul.
“Regardless of whether one favors the war or not, if it is to be fought, it ought to be paid for,” the lawmakers, all prominent Democratic allies of Obama, said in a joint statement on the “Share The Sacrifice Act of 2010.”
Proving that the Democrats never miss an opportunity to create yet ANOTHER tax, they think YOU are not paying enough when it comes to financing the war in Afghanistan. Whether you support it or not, the war needs to be paid for and the Democrats think taxing you more is the way to go.
You know, if this gets passed and provides another stream of taxpayer dollars to Washington, the Democrats might NEVER want to leave Afghanistan.
