An attempt to bring important issues that affect our country back into people's minds and away from the periphery. A heavy dose of politics, sometimes a consumer issue, and general discussion are all included. Please enjoy and comment.
Eliminate it for everyone, not just the bottom 50%. I don't agree with the top 50% having to pay... flat tax everyone, drop government programs, or implement a national sales tax thats reasonable and people can understand (not sliding, but an exact percentage).
I agree that everybody should have to pay. The fairest and most efficient way would be a flat tax, either that be on the income level or the consumption level. The problem is that if US implements a national sales tax, then were are going to get stuck with both of the taxes: income and the national sales tax instead of just one of them (plus all the state level ones). Steve Forbes, in his book "Capitalism will save US" pointed out that we would have to repeal the 16th amendment to institute a national sales tax, because otherwise we will just end up with both and government will only expand.
