I never stated otherwise... so cut away my friend. I agree that the the taxcuts were ridiculous - just as the recent "stimulous package" is ridiculous.Originally posted by: Skoorb
Your comment makes me want to cut my wrists. Who the fvck goes to war and slashes taxes at the same time? Bush, that's who. Were you in support of decreased or increased taxes in the past few years? They've clearly been too low.Originally posted by: palehorse74
What?! You mean the American people may be forced to sacrifice during a time when their country is at war?! *gasp* SAY IT AINT SO! oh the horror...
Higher taxes may be necessary to prevent dozens of years of debt, so I personally wouldn't object to a debt mitigation strategy that includes them...Of course when a country is at war people should sacrifice, but most Americans don't seem to realize this. If the true cost of the war was being paid while it was spent, our taxes would already be way up and people would _really_ hate the Iraq war then.
I was speaking more to the price of oil and other costs that may be attributed to the GWOT and war in Iraq.
With war comes sacrifice... for everyone.
