How to pay for this war

So after turning a budget surplus into a record high deficit by giving huge tax breaks to the wealthy and engaging in an expensive war of choice, how are you supposed to pay for it? Are we going to ask those who can most afford it to shoulder a little more of the burden? Could we perhaps cut out a few billion dollars of corporate welfare? Maybe George Bush could hold a little bake sale on the White House lawn. Nah, republicans are in charge and everyone knows how much they hate the idea of CEO's not being able to afford that 5th Bentley limo. No, the great "fiscal conservatives" are going to help pay for this war directly on the backs of the poor. You've just gotta love the republicans. At least they're consistant.
