Sorry buddy, I should have used this symbol at the end :sarcastic: The progressive liberals play the "it's not fare" card all the time. Our entire tax system is set up to make the productive people pay for the nonproductive. Obama and his party have had this plank in their platform for years. This is a major part of his campaign. Make the rich pay. Raise taxes on people earning more that $250,000. This has been all over the main stream media. How could you miss it? We don't need a national sales tax. Leave that to the states.Why is it not fair that everyone contribute federal income tax to this country? If you want to be able to afford your taxes, make yourself more valuable to employers.
And your very first statement implies very strongly that you believe politicians only do things that are fair? Seriously?
Keep in mind the person earning $100000 and paying 10000 may be able to afford it (they may not, either) but that their $10000 will likely benefit the person earning $10000 and paying $1000. But will not benefit themselves.
This is altruism at it's most evil and it is destroying the country. The successful must pay for the unsuccessful, BECAUSE they are successful. And the unsuccessful must get the money BECAUSE they are unsuccessful.
Flat tax with no deductions, and the tax begins at dollar one. Supplemented with a small national sales tax. EVERYONE contributes.
