(1) The payroll tax is NOT a "flatter, fairer, lower" tax. It's an add-on to support a socialist program. It was originally sold solely as the equivalent of a savings program for the middle class, which is why folks don't pay into it on income beyond $110K.
(2) You are not a conservative. Quit lying to us. We are not fooled.
(3) Warren Buffet pays a lower MARGINAL rate than his secretary because she makes in excess of $100K as a wage, and he makes his money with investments, not wages, and thus pays only capital gains taxes. Another lie from the left.
