I guess the thing that I don't get when it comes to macro economics concepts like the whole tax debate, is that simple logic seems to make sense on the right side of the argument when the conversation is about how an increase in taxation affects the bottom line, and slows a company from expanding, or hiring. And as well on the left side of the argument when discussing deductions that are manipulated for the upper tier of earners to skate from a fair obligation. But this is done by the lower tier as well through entitlements that bleed the system, and allow them to effectively pay nothing as far as income is concerned. Wouldn't it be a safe middle ground then to go back to a fair, or flat system? As a middle income earner in this country, and a tax payer I am sick and tired of carrying both ends.
It makes sense to me to, in light of seeing that the policies and demonization of wealth, and business that has been prevalent this past three years, that this sort of rhetoric and policy isn't working to better, or even tread water at this point. Things are getting worse. Don't we have to stop the madness?
