I LOVE it. LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Public opinion against the Iraq war is running at negative 70%. If there's anything under the sun that could bring that other 30% around, it's this.
I think this tax should be called the Iraq War tax. It should be in place until every penny of this war (past, present, future) is paid off. And since this war is, ostensibly, a war over oil, I would like to see this tax paid exclusively at the gas pump by people who drive cars.
