Taking Texas And The Nation Back

Lieberman Tax

Posted by nytexan on February 6, 2007

In the event you haven’t heard Joe Lieberman wants to put a terror tax to pay for the war.  According to Reuters, “an outspoken supporter of the Iraq war on Tuesday called for a new tax to pay for its astronomical cost as Congress opened a debate on President George W. Bush’s $2.9 trillion budget plan for next year”.

In a statement made by Lieberman “I think we have to start thinking about a war on terrorism tax,” “I mean people keep saying we’re not asking a sacrifice of anybody but our military in this war and some civilians who are working on it.”

It’s doesn’t amaze me to see how far his guy will go to help his buddy George. Bush sends a sky rocketing budget to the floor, which mainly support the war and nothing else. So Joe has to come up with some jerk idea since he favors the surge and the need for this huge budget.

Bush keeps saying that the Democrats want to raise our taxes. Now his good buddy Joe brings the issue of a tax to the house floor. How clever. This will give Bush the out he wants if taxes do get raised or a terror tax is imposed on us.  

Of course the middle class will be the ones that feel the pinch over everyone else.  Way to go Joe.
