Americans no longer paying for the Spanish-American War

Did you know that we've been paying for it the last 108 years through a federal phone excise tax of 3% on our phone bill to fund the war effort?  Apparently no one thought to remove it until now.

    With all due respect, you Americans are _still_ paying for the Spanish-American War, through various stupid (vapid?) policies targetting the Cubans for believing in the theory of the Declaration of Independence more than the US Fe[de]ral Government does, and various dependencies the US has developed on the Phillipines.

    It’s not nice, but they’re still there.
