    please tell me, how would you itemize which Federal programs you should pay taxes for, and which ones you should not?

    should you pay for the National Parks Service?

    should you pay for the EPA?

    should you pay for the FBI?

    should you pay for the Federal Student Loan program?

    your reasoning on this issue, is without reason.

    Would be pretty tough to pay for ICE since most people we go after don't pay income tax...

    Rich democrats and republicans create those loopholes for themselves and those that give them campaign money

    sorry to burst yo bubble.
    You burst nothing. They get way more than any damage that occurs.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    no, look at what he is describing. revenue neutral stripping of all the credits, loopholes, shelters, and so forth. that is precisely what the Ryan Plan does.

    Require E-Verify; $5,000 per head fine from the employers, split between the federal government and the agency that makes the bust.
