A flat tax across the board would fix this problem.
And the GOP opposes making it so billionaires at least pay the same rates as poor people
The IRS is a left wign blog and is therefor not relable
And the Democrats had two years of complete Congressional control to change this. Why didn't they?
The dirty little secret is that they are all protecting their wealthy cronies and donors, on both sides of the aisle.
You're a f-ing idiot.
1) Advocates of the flat tax will accomplish nothing more than eliminating higher tax brackets, allowing the rich to pay even less and still allowing the rich who pay no income taxes to continue to pay no taxes.
2) A flat tax with no deduction will never happen. Even if it did, it would cause some rich to pay more, but it would allow a lot of rich to pay less, less than the middle-class. It would also requires an increase in welfare to help the poor pay taxes.
Either way, you're wanting more government and more taxes for the middle-class.
They followed the law.
Gives them a leg up on Obama, doesn't it?
Flat tax wouldn't solve this problem, as those proposals want a flat rate for wage income. Wouldn't do anything about carried interest loophole, etc.
And millions that paid Zero taxes get paychecks from their Uncle every spring
What rate do poor people pay? I might be wrong but don't poor people generally pay well nothing in taxes or just what is taken out of their pay check? You want to make it so that is what billionaires pay.
Not reading tonight are you? How is a billionaire going to get out of paying if we do a flat tax like we are proposing?
