We already had one.

It was the Super (slush) Fund.

It would be subject to too much abuse. Lots of millionaires continually build expensive homes on the midatlantic shoreline. I don't want my tax dollars going to pay for beach replenishment, sea walls, etc., to protect or help rebuild their homes.

If you want to rework the budget to prepare for these kinds of issues, fine. More taxes on my poor ass? I don't think so!

What no one else is willing to admit we need more taxes in the face of this unmitigated disaster?

I'd rather stop spending money on nonessential things instead but that has little chance of happening.

No, we're overtaxed now. Actually, our over taxes are overtaxed.

No, we're overtaxed now. Actually, our over taxes are overtaxed.Actually, factually based we are undertaxed based on expenditures and compared to all other major economic countries in the world.

Pull out of Iraq...

enough of my tax dollars have been wasted there. Send them to the South.

the more you use, the more you pay.

the more you use, the more you pay.An Energy consumption tax sounds like a good place to start.

It's time to start taxing companies that use out of country workers to produce products that are imported back into the US.

I mean to tax imports to a point where workers here at home become equal. Yea I feel real bad for Wal-Mart (I hope those traitors die a slow death).

Example. Did you know when Daimler Benz and Chrysler merged, they became a German company because being based in Germany saved them 22% on each vehicle in taxes?

An American company that does business overseas pays taxes over there, and then the US gov't gets their hands on the overseas profits and taxes them over here too.

Any company based in America is at a distinct, and huge, disadvantage to one that is based overseas.

Bushron doesn't do normal taxes, they do deferred taxes. They institute "tax cuts" by ballooning the national debt to cover the deficit. But guess what kinda money will have to be raised to repay all that borrowing? Thats right - tax dollars. So they ain't really cutting taxes, they're just deferring them for us to pay later. The cost for creating an Islamic Theocracy in Iraq? No problem - just tack it onto the national debt! So much for the "war is expensive" myth. The cost for rebuilding New Orleans? No problem - just defer the tax hit for some other administration to pay off! Thats what we call "fiscal responsibility" and "conservatism."

I hope the next administration piles on this gloating POS excuse of leadership. History will not be kind to 'W' and his followers.
