    No. You would be paying the same as everyone. That is the point.

    We both pay 15%. I know what your trying to do here. Either you want to pay $0.15 in taxes or you want someone who makes $1 to pay $15,000 in taxes. Both scenarios are retarded. Neither is fair. Fair is paying the same percentage no matter what you make.

    I beleive the poster means that 15% of a high number - let us say $500,000.00 is a whole lot more in dollars than 15% of $50,000.00.

    In the first case ones tax bill would be $75,000.00 while in the second case it would be $7,500.00. Thus even though the rate is the same percentage, higher income earners pay more actual dollars.

    They are the same percentage. I edited my post before I read this. I'll paste it here for you.

    You're not paying more of your discretionary income though. Again, not the same.

    I'd be somewhat ok with that from the standpoint that the rich would finally start paying their fair share, and the lower classes will finally start pulling their weight. However 15% is not enough in my opinion.
