Let's be honest:
Republicans looked like a hero when the Bush Tax Cuts were instituted.
But we have not yet paid for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The Bush Tax Cuts failed to provide "trickle down" benefits.
The Bush Tax Cuts failed to stimulate the economy.
The Bush Tax Cuts failed to create jobs.
The war in Iraq was Bush's War-of-Choice.
The Bush War in Iraq diverted troops from Afghanistan, thereby raising the costs of that war.
Experts say that the war in Afghanistan and Iraq will likely cost more than three trillion dollars when we pay for the wars, pay to restock our military units, and pay to care for our wounded warriors.
We need a "War Tax"
We need to tax those who profited from the wars
