    Same as a fair share for the "middle class" and the "poor"

    Everyone should pay the same

    What syrenn said, with amplification

    Low, flat tax rate. Individuals only (get rid of corporate income tax as it results in double taxation).

    No deductions, no loop holes, no tax credits for social engineering/transfer payment purposes.

    Abolish SS and Medicare taxes. Entitlements should be funded out of general receipts as we are headed towards mean testing anyway.

    Pry should be however much of a percentage of the wealth they control they should pay that amount in taxes. Not really.

    All of those are too high, IMO.

    Every US Citizen should pay a flat tax of 15%, regardless of income.

    That sounds good. After the debt is paid off. But take note, the big mouthed liberals who scream "fair share" won't go public on the poll.. just as I figured.

    A free ride is a free ride wither its rich tax breaks or sucking on the entitlement tit. The free ride needs to end and everyone needs to carry themselves.

    Fair means fair. Everyone needs to pay the EXACT same amount in tax. Rich, poor and everything in between. No exemption. No breaks.

    I know,i can hear it now..but it hurts the poor paying the same as the "rich". Thing they never say is that it is the poor that get the benefits of the taxes, not the rich.

    LMAO!! So you think the poor generated 14 Trillion in debt? Before you go any further, give me a lucious strawberry, and do some reading on where government money is going and why?
