    That has nothing to do with our tax system, but nice dodge. So you just ignore the 30 nation study I referenced in my previous post that showed ~

    "The United States has the highest inequality and poverty in the OECD after Mexico and Turkey, and the gap has increased rapidly since 2000, the report said."

    "In the United States, the richest 10 percent earn an average of $93,000 - the highest level in the OECD. The poorest 10 percent earn an average of $5,800 - about 20 percent lower than the OECD average."

    What are your thoughts on these findings?

    You need to look at how the fair tax act address that not at how it worked in other places.
    I have looked at it. That is why I know it is just another regressive tax scheme by the fringe right. Not even the moderate Republicans buy that it could generate the necessary income without completely decimating the middle class which are required to buy all the crap that is made. That is why they have never passed it when they were in control of Congress.

    I hate people that discredit arguments from a certain perspective! Stop being so close minded! Emotional disposition is a mechanism of control! Read what the godless commie bastards have to say, make a cogent counter argument if you need to and then refute it!

    Could we not set it up where if you are poor you pay no taxes?

    We have an inefficient version of this already.

    Not sure what you're trying to say or how it's relevant to my point.

    You were saying that having the poor not paying taxes is more or less like what we already have, I inferred welfare.

    Well if the corporate elite don't have to pay for something like the UPKEEP of GM for example, why not bail them out? Corporate welfare, just as bad.
