Out of the Mouth of a Babe

Last night my wife and I were watching the talking heads–can’t remember who–and someone quoted someone else about how we need to raise taxes to pay for the war in Afghanistan, and my wife says, and I quote (loosely):

I am so sick of this! How dare they! Why should they raise taxes on us to pay for the one thing that our Constitution very clearly says our government is supposed to do? The tax revenue they already have should pay for the common defense first. So cut other programs if you have to, but don’t tell me you have to raise my already-high taxes to do the one thing the Constitution says our government is supposed to do.

Hard to argue with that, especially if the person saying it is a babe–my wife.
