From the NYT: What bull-hockey is this? Not only can Democrats not be bothered to end the war, they also can't be bothered to pay for it? Nancy Pelosi dismissing the idea out of hand is infuriating. The WH calling it "reverting to form" when a few Representatives propose paying for it's two hundred billion dollar a year travesty is beyond the pale. I've been saying to my friends for years, and more especially now since "The War" played on PBS that if Bush really meant it, he'd raise taxes and draft soldiers to get it done. If he wants to conflate WoT to WWII, let him raise taxes to similar levels. At 98% for every dollar above two hundred thousand nobody'd be asking how to pay for mine-resistant vehicles or bullet proof vests. We could even afford the trigger-happy mercenaries Bush seems to prefer over our own army. I'm going to be writing Pelosi a letter, along with my own Representative. This kind of idiocy is unexcusable.
