    If it's a flat 50%, with no tacked on bull**** like matching social security and medicare, and heavy road use taxes, I'm all for it.

    How 'bout you?

    Personally, I think every person and corporation that turns a buck, should cough up 10 cents off every dollar they report as profit.

    I have no alternative. I either make myself a serf to a man of capital, or I hold the whip myself. Either way, I am degraded by the system.

    50% would be pretty tough for most people. i'm glad it's affordable for you.

    its fair though. isn't that what you libs want?

    you always talk about treating people equally in many areas-why the hesitance to do it in this area?

    Hell, a flat 50% would be better than what I'm paying now, when you factor in all the other taxes that my business pays, such as FET on friggin' tires. I wonder what asshole thought that was a good idea.

    As it is, now, after I make payroll taxes, some weeks, there's nothing left.

    I have an even better idea to boost tax revenue: the government can get the **** out of the private sector's way and let us get back to making money!

    If everybody paid there would be no need for anyone to pay that much.

    no, it's not fair. it's fair to ask someone making 25k a year to pay half of their income in taxes? utter bvll****.
