One of the few things I like about Alan Grayson is he is against the Warfare State. The liberal news site Truth Dig reports on general idea of his bill.
The War Is Making You Poor Act is elegant in its simplicity. Instead of financing these longstanding conflicts outside of the regular budgeting process, where they’re not factored into deficit projections, Grayson’s bill would make the DoD work within its means, and the money would instead be used for an across-the-board tax cut that would make the first $35,000 each American earns tax-free.
From the looks of things, it sounds like a good bill but will the warmongers in congress support it? Who knows.
