I said a consumption or Flat Income tax rate.
Neither of which you disagreed with.
So I will assume/Say for you, that In both of those cases... I am correct. You cannot disagree.
So instead of a genuine reply, you bring up only ONE consumption tax not even mentioned. Your only out to my true statement; The Fairtax. Because it has a prebate with Abates the regressivity of Other consumption/sales taxes which do Not.
However, since the Fairtax is stated at a phony low rate (on which all income groups taxes would ostensibly go down), it isn't true even in that case.
If figured at the independently/multiply scored rate or 56%, the prebate is woefully inadequate at preventing the destruction of the poor... too.
Fairytax taxes, Food, Rent (which many poor people pay rather than own), Prescriptions, Medical procedures... everything.
You also drop/Misquote The "middle" from my "poor/Middle" to enable you to even make your qualified reply in re the Fairtax! The only one of the consumption or Flat taxes that you can even attempt debate with.
While your post looks like a reply- it instead is a disingenuous attempt to pick off One income group and One single of the consumption taxes, indeed a specific and lone one of them.
But even then .. fails.
