Tax rates are a joke. Everyone should pay their EQUAL share, which is the only way the government will ever be under the thumb of the people. We don't need any short or long forms from the IRS, just a bill totaling what Congress spent divided by the number of eligible voters (i.e. Citizens) [around $12,300 in FY2011]. If Congress is doing important work, then we should all pay our equal share. If they aren't doing important work then we shouldn't be paying for it. The people paying for it should get to decide how it gets spent. If you don't pay your equal share you shouldn't get to vote. If you want to vote, but you aren't paying your equal share you need to ask yourself, "What am I doing wrong and when am I going to participate?"
