U.S. Senator calls for a new surtax to fund ISIS ‘war’ as 8 out of 10 Americans think we are losing

Since 2003, Congress has spent over $3 trillion on wars in the Middle East, with little to show for it besides the rise of an Islamic caliphate.  And if more than a decade at war isn’t enough for the American public, a U.S. Senator from the state of Delaware wants to create a new surtax on the people to fund an escalation of the ‘war’ on ISIS, and at a time when 8 out of 10 Americans believe the Obama administration has failed in his mission to stop radical Islam.
The sad part of course is that Congress has not declared an actual war, and like the immense waste that occurred in Iraq and Afghanistan, who knows where revenues from this tax would really go.
