There's been a war going on for the past decade, yet we've been enjoying tremendously low tax rates the entire time. Regardless of whether it was a popular war or not, our elected officials sent us (us being the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines) there, but decided to take the "buy now, pay later" option. Whatever reason you want to throw out there, it doesn't matter.

We haven't paid for these wars, we've just been running up the charge card. And realistically, no manageable, realistic tax rate could have covered the costs of this war without a deficit, but now that the wars are drawing down, we need to start paying for them.

Across the board tax hikes. America hasn't been at war. The military has been at war. America has been at the mall.
Which is why we need to stop waging wars and bring our military home where they belong.
