Last week as Wisconsinites paid their taxes, we pointed out that our state has paid $8.3 billion to help fund the war in Iraq. That is over $8 million dollars that could have been used in so many other productive ways but instead was lost to the Iraq Tax. John McCain has walked in lockstep with George W. Bush and his failed policies in Iraq. He has even suggested that we could be in Iraq for another 100 years.
Today One Wisconsin Now launched a special website, ‘McCain’s Iraq Tax on Wisconsin.’ The site shows many of the productive ways that Wisconsin could have used the cash that has instead been sent to Iraq. It also gives people the opportunity to list ‘what good could you do with $8.3 billion?’
