    With a 10% flat tax rate the left would no longer be able to use class warfare to promote their socialist agenda !! and knowing that Americans taxes cant be raised they would no longer be able to buy votes and freedom with increased spending on social programs !!

    Steve Forbes proposed a 17% flat tax back in the 80's and the bean counters figured out that it wouldn't come close to covering the spending back then.

    200million people paying 10 % is a lot of cash !! and the waste that goes on in big government would be reduced because they would not have the means to get more money !!

    Bean counters, like many others, have a tendency to ignore information not in front of their eyes. specifically the uncacluated benefits to the economy of a simplified tax system.

    Not to mention that any sane person supporting the flat tax also realizes that we need to severely cut government spending.

    The people who are in control will never allow a flat tax without exclusions and exceptions.

    Then I suppose, we should take control.

    Kind of like the uncalculated benefits that supply side economics were going to magically produce?

    lol

    Btw. a 10% flat tax on my top line income (aka gross) would be a tax INCREASE for me, and I don't have any dependents.

    Careful what you wish for.
