On Paying for War

Want to go to war? Then show us the money. - Ezra Klein - The Washington Post: "Second, war has to cost money while it’s being fought. The way we decide whether something is worth it is to test whether we’re willing to pay for it. If a war is not worth a tax or spending cuts, then perhaps it is not worth engaging in. It’s understandable that the administration might need to act before offsets can be found, but only for the early days of a conflict. After that, it should have the money in hand."

Not moderated but I do delete spam and I would rather that people not act like assholes.
