Inspired by Path clearing in Congress for Obama’s Syria plan (Ed O’Keefe and Anne Gearan, Washington Post 9/16/14 page A7).
“And I took the path less traveled by.” – Robert Frost
The path is clear because it’s well-traveled,
And that’s why America’s finances have unraveled.
Let’s not go down the same path we did before:
Being willing to fight but not pay for a war.
What’s wrong with a small and temporary tax hike?
Can’t Republicans agree with pay taxes for things that they like?
If it’s worth it to fight to forestall future attacks,
Isn’t it worth paying a temporary surtax?
