And as usual, the first choice for doing anything is always to raise taxes. What a lack of imagination. Only if you don't like to pay for what you get. I'm really sick and tired about conservatives bad-mouthing taxes. Taxes pay for the common good - see the Preamble to the Constitution. If you want to give up interstate highways, police and fire protection, etc., move into the boonies and take care of your own needs w/o help from anyone else. MDH and I paid the max income tax rate for many years before retirement w/o complaint. It really frosts me that people think lower taxes is the be-all, end-all goal in life. I happen to like living in a civilized country.I also see no need to pay for a military that dwarfs the rest of the world's. Once you have that situation, you feel you have to use it. I'd really rather not pay to be the world's bully to impose Pax Americana.PM
