    Flat tax - it`s the only truley equitable way.
    Democrats say it burdens the poor who would more.
    Republicans say it burdens the rich who would pay more.
    Corporations don`t like it because they loose all tax breaks, but if they`re people then they can pay like the rest of us.

    I work with people who do the same work and earn the same amount. But they don`t pay much tax because they were stupid and had 6 children. So I have to pay more because they can`t figure out how a condom works. You bought a house-good for you. I choose not to use my money that way so where is my tax credit for not-buying a house at an inflated price and outrageous interest rate?

    I could go on and on but you get my point.

    Good news Gerry!! We are also going to make sure that they receive medical attention! And for the privilege of doing this I`m going to pay a fee to allow me to continue to use the insurance I already have. I`m so happy the stupid tatted unemployed are going to be able to get that elbow scrape looked at. Maybe I should be required to give them rides to all their important appointments too.

    Gerry I think that`s where we have a misconception. Corporations are NOT people. They need to be taxed as a corporation and there needs to be separate rules for them.

    Maybe I`m not getting memos from the Republican Party anymore, which is weird `cause we love cutting down trees, but my cabal is pushing for a flat tax.

    I know that I`ve been advocating it for the last ten years or so. (I was a modern day Alex P. Keaton at the time. Now I`m too old to be him...)

    Corps & Medical attention.. they get health care. What do you call the freakin` bail outs when a company is dieing?

    Maybe I`m not getting memos from the Republican Party anymore,
    The Repubicans call it a flat tax as a sales pitch. But it has lots of tax deductions in it for the rich so it`s not a flat tax by definition, just by name. Don`t change your content, change your label - that`s american politics.

    Estonia and Latvia have a flat tax of about 20-25% and they still manage to have low inequality. They did mega austerity at the beginning of the crisis and now they`re some of the only viable economies in the EU. Estonia is possibly the only Eurozone country qualified to be in the currency and Latvia is growing at 6%.
