Congressman David Obey has finally been raising the idea of paying for the war in Afghanistan. 10 more years in Afghanistan will cost $900 billion, about the same as the cost of health care for all Americans. Congressman Obey is finally saying America has to pay for its wars with a progressive tax surcharge specifically meant to pay for the war. Do you think the wealthiest people in this country are willing to pay for the war with 5% of their income? I think I know the answer. Let me know what you say.
