A plan to partly offset the costs of the Iraq war with a surtax appeared headed for oblivion Tuesday, after facing opposition from Democratic leaders and sharp criticism from Republican lawmakers.GOD but I hate Evil Liberals!!!!
The proposed legislation, offered by House Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey, D-Wis., and Democratic Reps. John Murtha of Pennsylvania and Jim McGovern of Massachusetts, would require low- and middle-income taxpayers to add 2% to their federal taxes, according to news reports, while higher-income taxpayers would see a surcharge of 12% to 15%.
[ cf Democratic leaders reject surtax plan ]
The Royalty and Aristocracy CAN NOT BE TAXED!!!!!
They hold the Important role in our Most American Society of providing the clarification of where Divine Rights Come From!!!! Didn't Those Evil Liberals Learn ANYTHING about the One and ONLY Glorious Revolution of 1688 and the Need to Maintain The True Royalty And Aristocracy, without which 'sirs' would be merely, well, the unwashed plebian masses of the pette bourgiese and their pettyNeff!!!
