A Tax Increase by Any Other Name

Well, Bush does like some taxes, as long as its less out-of-pocket money for sick veterans. See this Washington Post article for the billions in new fees proposed by Bush, including:

  • A new $250 annual VA health care premium to be paid by "higher-income veterans" -- generally those earning more than $29,576 year -- who are not suffering from a military-related disability.
  • Recreation and entrance fees at some national forests and parks would become permanent, opening the door to new charges at some locations.

    But hey, we all know about Bush's hostility to veterans. His administration has been trying to keep them from even knowing that health care is available. So why not tax them as well when they do find out.
