"Share The Sacrifice"
Obey, Rangel and Murtha are in now - looks like this train could be rolling downhill.
Dubbed the “Share the Sacrifice Act,” the six-page bill exempts anyone who has served in Iraq or Afghanistan since the 2001 terrorist attacks as well as families who have lost an immediate relative in the fighting. But middle-class households earning between $30,000 and $150,000 would be asked to pay 1% on top of their tax liability today — a more sweeping approach than many Democrats have been willing to embrace."More sweeping" is better. It's way past time for a lot more Americans to get at least a little bit of skin in the game.
