” - - - The bill is paid for by a 0.7 percent surcharge of Americans making over $1 million.”

Is it Constitutionally legal to have targeted tax increases for specific Federal projects?

How much money will this “surcharge” generate between now and 11-2012?

Funny you should ask.

If you carefully examine your phone bill, you will find a tax tracing to the Spanish-American War, ostensibly funding the expansion of long-distance phone service.
