Forum Post: It's not just Tax the Rich, it's what we do with the tax money

I see a lot of signs saying "Tax the Rich"; we can tax the rich all we want, but if the money goes toward funding more and bigger wars then it's counter-productive. We need to use our taxes to fund social programs, infrastructure (with competitive bidding from contractors), education and job skills. The USA spends $330 million a day on foreign wars; taxing the rich will only make the Defense Department's war chest bigger if we don't ensure our taxes are spent on domestic issues and not foreign wars.
