Republicans actually say, "a large portion of the population pay nothing when they file their income taxes". That's far different than simply stating Republicans say, "The poor pay nothing for taxes." I'm a Libertarian. So, I favor financial, ecological, & civil rights conservation.
Paying a smaller percentage of taxes is a great idea, via a Fair Tax that's only paid one time, when you purchase something. Not, paying taxes on your home, forever. Because, annual property taxes mean you're actually renting, not owning. It means elderly people can lose their homes from not being able to pay homeowner taxes. God wouldn't take more than 10% of our income. That should be all the combined govt gets. No other fees, either.
