America's Anti-War, Pro-Soldier Congressman Resurrects Idea of War Tax

Yes, it's Mr. Freedom Fries himself, a Republican conservative, who reversed his position on invading Iraq when he discovered we were lied into it.
....a dedicated "war tax" that would draw attention to military spending and force Americans to confront the cost of defense. [ I agree.]

Speaking at the Amphibious Warship Industrial Base Coalition's annual Capitol Hill breakfast Thursday, Jones acknowledged a need to shore up military strength, but said he is unwilling to "borrow from the next generation" to get the funds to do so.

Patteeu prefers to discuss war/military funding using a percentage which makes the amount appear to be nothing of concern, whereas using actal numbers and including off-budget numbers show it's not really a pittance. And for what? We're not any saferóbut less so.

In fact, the amount spent in the trillions, could fund more than one wall.

Time to talk more policy.
