We need to change our "income tax system" because the one we now have isn't working. But then, it never did, and only seems "fair" to those looking to game the system. As long as Politicians can play around with "deductions" they will use them as a re-election tool, so they should simply be eliminated. Depend on family size to set the taxable level on earned income, and the rate on "unearned income" should be flat, with no reference to family size. We need to go to a Flat Tax system and scale government accordingly, then let the "States" run that system and remit a certain percentage to the federal government, which would have no authority to ever borrow money, at all. That would solve our "national debt" problem and eliminate most wars...
