Only fair

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

As time goes on I find my­self more in agree­ment with Pres­i­dent Obama. When he calls for all Amer­i­cans to share the sac­ri­fice I think, “Ok, how about you pay for your own hous­ing, trans­porta­tion, and food? How about you pay for the chef and maid ser­vices out of your own pocket? And could you do a bit more of your own sac­ri­fic­ing in the Oval Of­fice and a bit less on the golf course?”

When the pres­i­dent calls for bal­anc­ing the bud­get with both spend­ing cuts and rev­enue en­hance­ment I agree. But since we al­ready know soak­ing the rich won’t help how about a new ap­proach? How about a 95 per­cent tax on cam­paign spend­ing? And just so we don’t shock the econ­omy too much we could ease it in by only ap­ply­ing it to in­cum­bents for the first 100 years or so.
