Rep. Frank: Boehner should tax his wealthy friends if he wants to continue Afghan war
Congressman Barney Frank (D-MA) said on MSNBC’s The Last Word Wednesday that President Barack Obama’s plan to withdraw 33,000 troops from Afghanistan was disappointing, but not as disappointing as House Speaker John Boehner’s response to the plan.
“If Mr. Boehner believes that it is so essential to keep troops there indefinitely, then he ought to be willing to tax some of his wealthy friends,” he said.
Frank added that Obama’s plan is “not good enough” and thought it was unfair to characterize those who want a swift withdrawal of all troops from Afghanistan as isolationists.
