Beto O’Rourke proposes ’war tax’ as part of veterans’ plan

Non-military households would pay a ’war tax’ to help cover the health care of veterans of newly-authorized wars, as per a plan by Beto O’Rourke’s campaign. The proposal is part of a series of health and economic measures aimed at improving care for veterans. O’Rourke is in Tampa on Monday for a veterans’ roundtable, where he is expected to discuss his plan for the first time.

Since politians decide when we go to war... Why doesn't the 'war tax' come out of their paychecks?

That's at least kind of patriotic. But is still just more tax.

This is actually pretty smart, as citizens might actually start to give a fuck about our foreign involvments if they are taxed more heavily for it.

this tax should be applied to weapons manufacturers, not regular people.

I like it. It incentivizes citizens to hate war.
