The flat tax would get rid of all deductions. Just getting rid of the deduction for mortgage interest alone would be very difficult when you have 60 percent of Americans who are homeowners and who depend on that deduction. The deduction is capitalized into the value of homes. If you lose the deduction for mortgage interest, housing prices would fall, and how popular would that be? Then, getting rid of the exclusion for health insurance – that would greatly increase taxes on workers or businesses. It’s all just a pipe dream.<quoted text>
A flat tax with no exemptions and exceptions is the only fair tax. A crackwhore gets ten dollars, she coughs up a buck fifty or so to the federal government.
Abolish the IRS.
