A Modest Tax Proposal
The GOP is all breathless about deficits, but this is the same GOP of Dubya Bush that fought a war in Iraq (unnecessary) and Afghanistan (overextended) funded entirely by debt.
So, the following proposal.
A 3% surtax on taxable incomes over $75,000 until the cost of both wars is paid.
This level of tax should not slow the economy, and we should face up to the responsibilities of having troops in the field.
