    Once the numbers come up on how big a tax cut the flat tax represents for the wealthiest, this will lose its charm for normal Americans.

    The Rich benefit the most; the poor/low incomers get a pretty good deduction, so mathematically, the middle has to get fucked.

    Americans who believe in giving their fair share might think the flat tax is a good idea.

    That way, from the top dollar to the least coin can be satisfied with the gift they give to their country.

    Equality rocks!

    I think the GOP candidates are taking turns pulling tax plans randomly out of the old tax plan grab bag.

    We should raise everyone's taxes the same percent in whatever amount is needed to pay for the 40% of the budget we're currently borrowing,

    and then see how fast everyone suddenly decides maybe we should spend less.
