Apart from your Marxist bent"<quoted text>I never deied that. I proposed DOING SOMETHING TO CORRECT THAT - specifically, change the tax code so that EVERYONE, rich or not, pays the SAME IDENTICAL tax rate. Rich people would NOT pay any lower tax rate.
Apart from your Marxist bent, what's "unfair" about that?
Name calling and ad hominum attacks... Again, why am I not surprised?
Hmmm what's unfair about someone making $20,000 a year paying 18% and someone making $5 million a year paying 18%?
Lets see, maybe the 18% means MORE to the person making $20,000 a year then to the millionaires. Maybe someone making $20,000 a year keeping, lets say 8% of the 18%(paying 10% rather then 18%) can put food on their table instead of eating Ramen noodles. Maybe they could spend money on necessities for their children rather then barely getting by. Maybe they wouldn't have to worry about a hospital bill... Oh and they'd also have more money in their pockets, paying less in taxes, to spend on the economy, which, if you haven't noticed, needs all the help it can get... Rich people ever worry about food? Hospital bills? Feeding their children? Didn't think so.
Not to mention, a flat tax wouldn't prevent rich people from taking advantage of the loopholes poor people aren't able to obtain, so there's that....
But I'm interested, is it just taxes that, if aren't exactly equal, you claim Marxist? Like, would a teacher staying after school to help tutor a child ALSO be a sign of someone thinking as a Marxist? The other students aren't being treated as equal... What about different lesson plans for an autistic child? Also Marxist? Or should every child be taught in the exact same way (equality)?
And just so were clear, taxes RIGHT NOW are uneven, are you claiming America is a Marxist nation RIGHT NOW? I mean, if my idea of fairer taxes for everyone, rich paying more in taxes then poor, is Marxist, as you claim, then are you saying America is a Marxist nation, as poor people are currently paying a higher tax rate then rich people?
