Folks...I know these are tough times, but now is the time for a truely fair tax. So many people and corporations aren't paying into the system. It is not a rich/poor thing. I say no credits or deductions for anybody, and everybody pays 10% regardless of income (save for those making any amount that keeps them at or below the poverty level). Those that are on government assistance (welfare or the like) must be drug tested randomly, and work a minimum of 35 hours/week. If they can't find a job, the work for the local or state government doing what needs to be done (i.e. picking up trash, etc). Last but not least, we start putting a tax on imports to bring the price equal to that which is made in America. If we are to pick any winner/losers regarding foreign policy, it should be with those countries that actually don't harbor terrorists, and want to work with us.
Just some thoughts from podunk.
Well put. However, I'd change the last bit to "countries who don't KNOWINGLY harbor terrorists." Realistically, most countries harbor them in some way shape or form, even if they don't know it.
