The '5%" number you dudes were throwing around is NOT the Flat Tax rate.
It would be more like 20% (since you're eliminating cap gains, Divs, estate etc)
and people making 30K with a family of 4 CANNOT pay that, while people making $3 mil Can. with no sweat.
In fact, An 18% Tax CUT for the latter! Necessarily Made up by YOU lackies. Duh!
A Flat tax would lead to even more income/wealth Disparity than we have now.. Obviously.
and it's ..er.. 'Fair' if you want to return to a Feudal society of Castles/Lords and serfs.
Which because of lowered top marginal rates/reduced progressivity we're already doing.
More people with servants and private Jets, and a smaller Middle Class.
Can't wait for 'Flat tax'!
(and the same little revolution/revelation we had 100 years ago to tax the Rockefellers and Mellons)
