Dem calls for temporary tax to pay for ISIS war

Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) is proposing a temporary surtax to pay for the war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

In an op-ed Sunday in The Philadelphia Inquirer, Coons criticized Congress for not paying for the war.

The latest Pentagon statistics show that as of Nov. 30, the U.S. has spent nearly $5.4 billion on the war since August 2014, and the average daily cost is $11 million. 

"One way to offset rising costs while allowing all Americans to contribute is a temporary war surtax that includes an exemption for our troops and their families," Coons wrote.

"As we pursue our goal of 'degrading and destroying' ISIS, we cannot write another blank check for war," said Coons, a member of the Foreign Relations Committee. 

Coons said Congress has taken steps to pay for every major conflict, often through new taxes, since the War of 1812.

That practice ended with the post-9/11 wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, he said. The Iraq War would eventually cost $1.64 trillion and the Afghanistan War $715 billion.

Good idea, let THEM PAY FOR IT

Democrats love higher taxers, until they have to pay.    

I wonder how much of that will go into the Clinton "Charity" group?  I hate to think about what Bill Clinton's "Expense Account"  will be after 'good ole Hillary ' gets them back in the WH  ,,Just think about what those two will retire with ...let's see now two pres. runs - sec of state -  and don't forget all the speaking engagements .oh, yes , and all the foreign deals they can cut ..............and we support them for the rest of their lives --

'course, since they are grooming Chelsea for Pres , she can also funnel some into their hidden accounts when the big day comes .........ah, well , they are such a  deserving 'class of trash' and it WILL keep the DC Insiders content ---'til the next election... Unless Hillary forgets and tells the truth some time.......

They're saying "a tax to fight ISIS", but what they mean is, "OScumBag's appetite is increasing" and the First Welfare Queen needs more vacations.

These Dems have brain of dead man. The USA is under control of ISLAMIC leader Obama. We are sinking fast folks. Do we sink with ship or do we stand and retake country? Look into eyes of your grand kids and tell them you sold out and they will be enslaved.

Hope Trump's tax records are straight .... they are looking already , I'm sure ....Think we better start saying thanx to him for spending his own money ....He's quite a guy......and I'm sure he loves this USA ...God Bless America

Tax and spend, it's what Democrats do. Some Senators of the Reagan Era passed a Federal Law requiring a balanced budget. Some Democrats took it to the Supreme Court and got it thrown out. Ever since then Federal monies have been nothing but a huge grab-bag by all sides and whatever taxes we pay we might as well just have a bonfire with all of it April 15. We really don't need this government anymore, we can defend our borders better, we can grow food and feed ourselves, those that won't can get really, really skinny for all a lot of us care 

Do I hear a heartfelt HELL NO...... You like it you pay for it. Hell we can hardly pay the bills we have now
How about a permanent tax on every liberal, to help pay for the massive list of economical and social damage to this nation. Every form of decay...societal values, justice system failures, military weakening, general decline in conduct....all tied to disgusting liberalism. But realistically, money couldn't begin to fix the damage.

Wait a second!  The Dems are now admitting we are at war with ISIS?  And when it comes to taxes and democrats, there is noting temporary about it.  Something fishy going on here. 

Hey Coons, try thinking about your own constituents before trying to raise taxes for a war that we didn't ask for, your so called illegal boss is the one that called for that and then only begrudgingly.  NO NEW TAXES.  Tell him to stop going on so many DAMN vacations and use that money instead to pay for HIS DAMN WAR!!!!!!  This is from one of your own constituents that is truly UNHAPPY with your performance!!!!!!

NO  from what I hear we are doing next to nothing  which should cost next to nothing also.

ALERT ALERT

BREAKING:   Hillary Clinton Donor Ed Buck Arrested After Another Male Overdoses In His Seedy LA Apartment

Democrat donor and Hillary friend Ed Buck was finally arrested Tuesday night after a third man overdosed in his apartment.

The man who overdosed in Ed Buck’s Los Angeles apartment last week survived, however the other two victims previously died.

Ed Buck will be in court Wednesday.

Ed Buck loves to inject young black gay escorts with methamphetamine — the mother of one of Ed Buck’s victims described it as a fetish.

He was finally arrested after two black gay escorts died in his apartment from overdoses.

KTLA 5 reported:

The prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who overdosed last week, officials said.

Buck was charged with three counts of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting the victim, who survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.

of another young black gay escort was found at the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck, a top Democrat donor and political activist.

As previously reported, a black gay escort named Gemmel Moore died of a meth overdose at Ed Buck’s West Hollywood home in July of 2017.

The LA County District Attorney’s Office previously declined to prosecute Ed Buck saying the evidence was “insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that (Buck) is responsible for the death of Gemmel Moore,” which sparked an outrage from family members and others in the community.

Jasmyne Cannick told FOX and Friends nearly a dozen black men have come forward to speak on their experiences with “serial predator” Ed Buck.
Cannick also went off on the Democrat Party: “Over 77% of black people in California vote Democratic. We vote for Democrats.

It is a shame that when something like this happens, when you have the chair of your state party when at the time of this , Eric Bauman, who was willing to turn a blind eye as well as instruct others not to speak on it. As a black woman, as a black Democrat, I expect more from my party.

Last week, a black male was seen entering Ed Buck’s seedy LA apartment.
