I am not sure how serious a suggestion this is, but I love it. The Sun Chronicle reports:
Winslow says the solution to the tax talk is simple — make politicians dig into their own pockets first.
“There is more than 20 million dollars sitting in war chests after campaign season,” he said. “Why not tap into that?”
Winslow said that if politicians were taxed on their campaign treasuries, $5 million would be subtracted from the additional amount individual taxpayers might be hit with.
The reason for potential tax increases is desperation and poor leadership, Winslow said.
What a great idea–tax the politicians first!
