So how well did the tax cuts for the rich do?? What did we as a nation get for that 3.2 trillion spent on tax cuts for the rich?? Where are the jobs?? Where is the economy?? Where is the debt and deficit??
Just about everything in the poll list needs to be done.. While we will always have some live in poverty.. It should be an issue of them living that way by choice for some religious thing and not because they don't have any options to better themselves..
College should be free.. All education should be free.. Knowlege should be free.. Healthcare should be free.. 44,000 people die each year due to lack health insurance.. I am sure they aren't rich..
There should be no loopholes of any kind.. For any tax bracket.. People that make 50k or less a year in income should be exempt from paying taxes.. That includes sales tax or any other tax..
Since religion has failed in staying out of politics.. All churches need to start paying taxes for the people they employ and the profits they make..
Dramatically increase the taxes on all imports for companies that out source jobs to other nations for cheap labor.. They want to sell their products here they can make it here as well.. This would only apply to companies that started their Existence as U.S. companies.. Foreign companies are not obligated to build their products here.. But again, Tarifs can be used to make sure that all foreign and domestic companies have a level playing field to sell their wares here..
There should be a flat % tax rate.. No matter what your income, you pay 30% income tax on your income.. Again.. 50k or less do not pay taxes..
I don't think the government should get into allowing or not allowing who can or can't have children..
The income of the CEO of every company needs to be tied to the lowest paid person in their company.. No CEO can make more than 40 or 60 times the lowest wage earner in their company.. For privately owned companies this would work with the owners.. The key here is to make sure that when the rich people get a raise.. So does everyone else.. This will go along way with economy.. I am realitively certian that a dramatic cut in pay at the exective level will help with any payroll problem that most companies have..
Education and healthcare need to be removed from the for profit arenas..
Luxary taxes need to be assessed on multiple homes and private airplaines..
Forcing companies to treat their employees fairly and equally will go a long way toward not needing unions.. No company should provide a pension for their employees.. All pension funds should go to Social Security to boost their retirement amount there.. Basically just an employee bill of rights is all that is needed..
No bail outs.. If a company fails then it fails..
There are a lot of creative things we can do with taxes to make sure people get hired and are working.. But the biggest issue is making sure every child, reguardless of who their parents are, has the same chances and opportunities.. We really need to level the playing field.. Companies would be a lot better off hiring someone who really has talent and not someone who was rich and with a titanium spoon up his butt..
