I'm just curious as to why we can't work out a non-partisan solution to the deficit. I feel like the most fair thing would be to add more brackets to the current progressive individual income tax. Thinking something like 45% for people making over 1MM, and maybe 50% for people making over 10MM? At the same time, we could reduce the corporate tax rate from top level of 35% to something more competitive like Romney's 25% or maybe even lower depending on what true blue economists think. I just think that this solution would make both political parties at least somewhat happy, it would help reduce the deficit by increasing growth, the lowered corporate tax rate would reduce corporations leaving the US, and the reduced tax companies would have more income to spend on jobs and investments. The only people that would really stand to not benefit from this are the extremely wealthy, and even they would be benefiting from the lowered corporate tax as it would likely increase their salaries. I just say better to tax the individual than the corporation, because individuals rarely create jobs, corporations do all of the time. Anyone have any ideas on why this is a bad idea? I don't pretend to know if it is a good one or not, just seems logical to me.
