BOB O'Rourke proposes 'war tax' on wealthy U.S. families without military members.

BOB O'Rourke rally with supporters.

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke on Monday proposed taxing affluent American families who do not have members in the U.S. military as a way to fund healthcare for veterans.

The former congressman from Texas unveiled a plan for military veterans that includes a “war tax,” in which taxpayers who earn over $200,000 a year would pay $1,000 in a new tax for each war embarked on by the United States.

O’Rourke, who did not serve in the military but sat on the House of Representatives Armed Services and Veterans’ Affairs committees, said the tax would be levied on households without current members of the U.S. military or military veterans. He did not specify what types of war, or the scale and origins of the wars, on which the tax would be levied.
Of course he didn't explain or provide details on his plan. He's nothing more than a walking, talking glob of platitudes - the same as every other DEM.

Maybe BOB can voluntarily contribute a retroactive "war tax" for his lack of military service, considering his vast wealth of White Privilege lifestyle.
