• nope ... poor don't pay enough and the rich too much as it is already ... i think a flat sales tax across the board is the answer ... make it simple ... no more income taxes state or federal ...
  • What "Over Here Now" said.
  • I think there should be a flat rate on income tax. This is the only fair way. People who work their tails off to get ahead in life should not have to give up a larger percentage of their earnings because poor people are not earning enough. I never know anyone who wanted to go to college or start their own business and risk it all just for the chance to pay higher taxes.
  • arrr, the Robin Hood approach? lol :D no, I think their should be a flat rate for everyone, as the rich people have generally worked their way up to earn the right to be payed more because they worked the hardest to get there.
  • What "Baggins" said!!!
  • Yes, it would be nice if the rich paid AT LEAST as much as the poor do in taxes...;-D...
  • I'm with designer on this one.
  • I think understanding how the tax system works in the first place would be a great start.
  • The answer to this is easy, FLAT TAX, why no on in washington sees this is beyond me.
  • How about a 3rd choice?
  • Lowered for the so called rich so they will be encouraged to start businesses and hire people.
  • Flat tax is the way to go. Its insane to increase taxes on prosperity.
  • A bit of column A, a bit of column B. And just ignore the preachy middle-class SOBs.
  • Both neither. Return to the tax structure prior to the Reagan years.
  • The top 1% of Americans pay more in income taxes than the lower 95% combined. "...putting this in perspective, the top 1 percent is comprised of just 1.4 million taxpayers and they pay a larger share of the income tax burden now than the bottom 134 million taxpayers combined." The Tax Policy Center also states that 45% of Americans (77.5 million) pay NO federal income taxes. But, let's keep taxing the top 1% as the left states. Who cares if they are the job creators. After all, they're not paying their fair share.
  • neither. "The poorest one-fifth of Americans have 3.3 percent of total income and pay 2.0 percent of total taxes. Each income group's share of taxes is quite similar to each group's share of total income. Contrary to popular belief, when all taxes are considered, the rich do not pay a disproportionately high share of taxes."
  • Yeah, fuck this shit!
    • MichaelXD
      I think she don't feel like cleaning it up.
