"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
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 wouldSTILLbe 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.
