"In the example above, all taxpayers keep 8 cents of every dollar earned."

I think that should read "80 cents"!

When the author states that all income would be taxed this way does he really mean all income, or just income from work and welfare?

And when he mentions taxing welfare receipts, does he mean all welfare - including what corporations get - or just what individuals get?

And would corporations have to pay taxes on their profits (since they are "people") or do they just get to utilize the benefits of living in the US without contributing to paying the cost of those benefits?

I'm not too religious, but doesn't God in the bible call for a flat tax?

And lets be clear,

even with a flat tax, everyone is NOT paying the same.

The evil rich people would still be paying significantly more than their share.

Mitt Romney is not forcing the government to incur ridiculous amounts of debt due to the fact he is rich.

In fact, him being rich is in no way related to the US being in such a poor economic state.

If Mitt hadn't worked hard, made wise decisions, and become rich, the country would

STILL

be in the same poor economic state.

I'm sick of us getting the victim mentality.

I need to stop crying and start doing my own share. And stop demanding that Mitt Romney pay for what I use.
