Imagine a tax code that got smaller the more money a person made. What a concept! Then everyone would be motivated to seek better paying jobs and start up businesses to make even more money. This way, when you are just starting out you pay the highest percentage, and as you get more money, the percentage gets lower. Now you are motivated to please the boss or the clients so that they will give you raises, or more jobs, improving your income picture, while cutting your obligations to the government. Wow!!!!!!!
