    "Lower the tax rate, and broaden the tax base." I'll vote for that. How about you?

    Why do you think it's empty?

    Of course.

    Cut the red tape and taxes, and support the private economy rather than public employment.

    Makes no sense

    You have to go where the money is

    Lower the tax rate= multimillionaires pay less
    broaden the base= poor people pay more

    Much less money coming in and an insignificant amount of extra money coming in to make up for it

    Actually your way the poor don't pay more because they don't have jobs. Though you only believe that if you believe silly little things like empirical data...

    don't think so, they're aren't enough millionaires to fund demonRat spending sprees, to let everyone pay a fair share.

    Well, I guess you could just call them the "Freedom" tax breaks, tell everyone that they'll "help fight terrorism" and then get some corporate backing for an advertising campaign from the Koch brothers.

    Of course, it won't actually accomplish anything, except to make you all feel better about your class warfare...
