Let’s consider a flat tax approach

With all the bantering about recently on who should pay more tax — the rich making over $250,000 or getting those 50 percent of the freeloaders who don’t pay tax to pay up… I have a very simple and fair idea. How about a 15 percent flat tax?

Yes, that’s right… You make $1, you owe 15 cents, you make $1 million you owe $150,000. Simple. And an added bonus is we can save billions of dollars by eliminating the IRS and forcing tax accountant and lawyers to actually get a job which contributes to society.

Now that’s a plan and the first candidate for president who runs on that platform will get my vote. That is the fair and balanced way to eliminate all the bantering about the unfair, crooked tax system in this country.
