    How many examples would you like?

    Re: Revisit - Tax Reform

    The left is hung up on wanting people who make more to pay more. The flat tax of a set percentage does that, but it doesn't sink in. If I make $50K I'll pay $5K, if I make $100K I'll pay $10K. Look it up... it's MORE!!! The left is hell bent on not only punishing someone for being successful, but they want to bleed them dry so they can cash in and get more free stuff. Someone has to pay for all the free Obamaphones.

    Reform if that means abolishing the entire system and then replacing it with the flat tax system.
    The question is more important than the answer!

    Considering the USSC has probably heard over 10,000 cases over the years, 1000 cases of bias - 1/10 - would be a good starting point for an argument of bias.

    No, I just said it was a good starting point for proving an argument of bias.

I think we need to make tax rates fair for single and married people, everyone should file as a single individual. Progressive taxation is a necessary evil in my book until there is a system that better handles taxation without a progressive system. However, I think that the progressive ladder should be lowered where the max rate is 30% and only applying on the top 500k+ in income, the lowest bracket should be 15% with that starting at the 15k income level mark (anything under 15k should be tax free).
    There are more loopholes--actual loopholes--that benefit the IRS than there are that benefit the citizens. Hence the reason the tax code is so complex and convoluted. The government will never reform the code by simplifying it. If anything, they're make it more complex and confusing, so the government can continue to benefit.

    You don't understand the left. If you make $50k and pay $5k that is fine so long as you pay $1k in union dues. But if you make a 100k they don't want $10K they wants $55k so you are equal to the guy who made $50k and paid union dues.

    When our income is near the same as an average household, and the last $10k of that income is at a higher percentage than Romney paid, that's bias toward the upper class - I don't care how you cut it or how you try to spin it.
