For tax reform, in an ideal world, my suggestion would be to include a war tax for our involvement in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Niger.
We have been at war the past 16 years with no end in sight.
The approximate cost for the past 16 years is $3 trillion. That does not take in account the human toll or the cost of continued health care for those injured.
Airbus Group, Raytheon, Boeing and Lockheed Martin are but a few of the companies that benefit from 16 years of war. Companies that benefit from these wars must not have a tax reduction. There should be a war surtax on any company that benefits from this unending war.
At 77, I hope we are a people that will not let our kids and grandkids pay for this war and increasing tax deficit.
