I have a real problem with your simple, flat, fair, tax. That what we stated with way back in 1913. A simple flat, fair tax (on income) that affected only the very rich and for a very small amount. And you can see for yourself how easy it has been for politicians to adjust that tax rate, and how many more people pay higher and higher tax rates. Have NONE of you ever heard of the Fair Tax (HR 25/S 13)? A flat tax on CONSUMPTION will be more effective at raising revenue, and less likely to be used as a tool for social engineering. And since any adjustment in the tax rate would affect ALL citizens equally, it would be obvious that the politicians are manipulating the rate. I have seen no will by ANY politician to contain spending.
