    Taxes and Voting

    by Walter E. Williams

    Having 121 million Americans completely outside the federal income tax system, it's like throwing chum to political sharks. These Americans become a natural spending constituency for big-spending politicians. After all, if you have no income tax liability, how much do you care about deficits, how much Congress spends and the level of taxation? Political calls for tax cuts and spending restraints have little appeal.

    I don't pay any fed income tax and I care a whole fuckload about the deficit, how congress spends and the level of taxation. How bout we all pay a certain % of our income, across the board. Seems fair. Congress? Cut spending? Congress? Has hell frozen over??

    No

    But I am for the equal treatment to have every US citizen pay the same % in taxation on every dollar earned as income tax...

    But you are conflicted by interest, you love income redistribution scams.

    what about those who pay no taxes because their investments and business deductions bring their taxable income to zero or even below zero? I know quite a few of those people including one who spent his iraq wartime bonus money on houses to rent out for extra income. should he and other people like him not be able to vote?
