DEMOCRAT SENATOR: Wants to Impose ‘Surtax’ on Americans to Pay for War Against ISIS, After Ineffective Bombing Bill Hikes Up to…

It’d be much cheaper for the American people if you remove Obama from the White House.

Senator Chris Coons, a Democrat from Delaware, went on the Morning Joe Show to call for a “small surtax” to pay for the war against the Islamic State.

Coons said in addition to authorizing Obama’s unconstitutional Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) Congress must levy a new tax on Americans to pay for military action against IS.

The US has spent more than $5 billion on the war against IS since August, 2014.

“The daily tab for fighting ISIS had already climbed more than 20 percent between May 21 and October 15 of this year, from $9.1 million a day to nearly $11 million, according to the Pentagon’s latest public figures,” reportsVocative. “More than half of those costs came in the form of airstrikes, which the U.S. has employed since August of 2014 to pound Islamic State targets. Munitions, logistics and operational support accounted for the remaining costs, the Pentagon said.”

The cost is expected to rise considerably now that the Obama administration has said it will step-up the campaign to wipe out the group.
