Show Me The Money

It amazes me when I hear people worry about where the money is going to come from to help rebuild New Orleans and help the hundreds of thousands of people to put their lives back together.  We’re spending 50 billion dollars per year in Iraq — I don’t care what your opinion of that war is, as long as we see fit to spend that amount on a foreign country on the other side of the world, we sure as hell can figure out how to spend whatever it takes for the victims of Katrina to recover.  If you can’t see that, you’ve got no business calling yourself an American.  Where’s the money going to come from?  Here’s a novel idea — over the last four years we’ve doled out $1.6 trillion in tax cuts to the wealthiest people in our society.  Just repeal those tax cuts!  It’s that simple folks.  The reality is those people aren’t going to miss the money — it’s just gathering dust on their personal balance sheets anyway — so let’s take that money back and put it to good use.  If we are such a “Christian” country as we always seem to want to claim, then let’s act Christian for once.
