"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?
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.You need to look at how the fair tax act address that not at how it worked in other places.
