Standout congressman Alan Grayson has sponsored a bill called The War Is Making You Poor Act, co-sponsored now by Conyers. It lumps the Iraq and Afghanistan wars together and limits spending on them to the almost $600 Billion in the 2011 budget. The bill also eliminates income tax for the first $35,000 for individuals and $70,000 for couples.
Sounds great, right?!
The bill has been tabled, but you can help move it forward by signing the petition to get it there.
Isn't it brilliant, by the way, how Grayson included the tax break for normal people? Good way to get fiscal conservatives and the tea party behind progressive legislation! If Obama won't stop the wars, we'll follow leaders who will!
