Hello Scrap Iron.
There should be a "Citizen Tax" ...... Very simple. Divide Obama's annual spending ($3.8 Trillion) by the number of people (310 million), and each and every person pays roughly $12,000 per year for federal taxes..
If that were the case, people would learn not to vote for big spenders. Eventually, spending would be cut signifacantly. The budget would be balanced. Nothing could be more fair. ....... What are the politcal odds oif this idea?
