Mostly ignored by the media, which focused soley on Sen. Jon Kyle's discounting of the number of people who die each year due to lack of health insurance, was David Gregory breakthrough question about deficit neutral war funding. I've been waiting a long time for someone, anyone, to to ask a Republican about a possible war tax.
For Sen. Kyle, there isn't a debt big enough to discourage him and his cowering fellow Republicans to stop spending taxpayer dollars on war. They're affraid, big time. We can never be too safe, even at the expense of health care, education, energy and a balance budget.
