If the progressive income tax was removed (eliminated ) and replaced by the Fair Tax , the economy would be able to support the spending . There is no incentive for people to work and make money now , as the profit is taken away .(Flat tax will not do it as that is still progressive ) . Huckabee was the only candidate who understood this but was removed by Republicans from the race . The progressive tax was an idea by Marx and Engels to bankrupt the Capitalist system , and it works unfortunately .
I also came from Hungary in1957 . Went to school here in the U.S. and had a great life . What is killing the capitalist system is the " Graduated Income-Tax ".The average person can't make Capital by normal working .The incentive is taken away .Flat tax is still progressive so those who think that would work are missing the point . Huckabee was the only candidate , who understands this .Unfortunately even Republicans missed his very interesting way of a populist run . They are doing it again , now that he might try again .Marx and Engels designated the graduated taxes as the major component to bring down the system , and they were right .
One of your best columns , especially the socialist "rights" . LOL .
The one good thing about Obamacare's infrusion into the market is redirecting where your insurance comes from , according to John Stossel . It was wrong to rely on employers or the Government ( a third party ) not just yourself . Maybe we can have a truly free market after the dust settles .

It is not just Obamacare that's making our country sick . It is our Tax System that taxes INCOME .This leaves individuals with no incentive to work . Huckabee was the first candidate to support the closing of the irs ( repealing the 16th Ammendment ) and put the people in charge of their own life . He was the first Tea Party candidate that was smeared by both sides . He was using some of the lefts tactics and most "leaders " didn't understand how he was trying to slip by the Democrat smear machine . We have a lot to learn .

I remember Huckabee running for President on the best platform that that people could support :abolishing the IRS and instituting the Fair Tax . As long as income is taxed , the incentive of making money is taken away from the people and they stop working . Economic decline follows . Huckabee was considered a Rino by the purists who fail to understand the way candidates have to act to get results . Without tax reform we'll never be free .
Ted Cruz demonstrated how government's irrational laws are upheld by the Dictator's friends . Unfortunately the Dictator is chosen by the majority (symptom of democracy , not a Republic ) .Our Republic , represented by Republicans , is being changed to a Democracy , represented by Democrats . There lies the first big problem . We must change back to republic and stop using "democratic" . Words mean things .

The problem with this is that our time on this earth is limited . Having escaped from a Socialist ( on it's way to Communist ) country , I lived here in peace and prosperity almost all my life . I look at the people around me and see how unaware they are to what is coming , and what their life will be like . The experience is costly and it took Russians 75 years to learn . That is a lifetime for a couple of generations .

There may be an unintended consequence to O Care : people NOT getting their insurance through their employers . This change would make individuals in charge of their own destiny . Changing jobs would not be the problem it is today and tax benefits would go to the individual .
