War bonds proposed to pay for Afghanistan, Iraq conflicts

• McClatchy News
Lawmakers in both houses of Congress have introduced legislation to pay for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq by using a method that's a throwback to prior U.S. conflicts: war bonds.

Saying that it would "promote national shared sacrifice and responsibility," Rep. Kendrick Meek, D-Fla., introduced a bill Wednesday in the House of Representatives that would authorize the treasury secretary to issue and sell war bonds to Americans to fund the wars.

In fact, lets base and fight the whole Afganistan and Iraqi wars on selling these bonds.  Surely enough people will buy them to pay for these wars several times over.  We need go no futher in debt for these wars.   With these bonds we won't have to sell some other sort of Social Security program to the rubes again.

Added to that, I propose the Fat Cat Congressmen and Senators pull their wealth to float the wars until enough bonds are sold and can take the reigns.
