Flat taxes are ignorant and that's why neither republicans nor democrats would ever go for them. Use your head. Why would someone making 8 dollars an hour - who can't pay rent or buy food - have to pay a tax just to receive it back in assistance. More tea bagger logic.<quoted text>
See the thing you don't understand is that tax cuts don't have to be funded it is money that people have already earned. Government projects are funded by the working mans sweat. You have it in reverse. We work for the money, the government takes it under the threat of imprisonment if we don't pay them money to waste on stupid programs. Like for instance the matting habits of bull frogs or a bridge to no where in Alaska. Anybody thinks its the governments money to give to us in a tax credit or cut, doesn't understand the concept of a Capitalist Society. If you remember in history we fought the British for over taxation and this country now is being taxed more of a percentage than we ever were under British rule. For years we didn't even have a federal income tax. I don't mind paying federal income tax if everybody got taxed the same percentage rate according to income. If you make 8 dollars and hour you get charged the same tax rate you want to tax someone making 1000 dollars an hour. Called a flat tax across the board.
And we didn't fight Britain over taxes. Everyone expected to pay taxes, because EVERYONE requires government services. They fought over taxation WITHOUT REPRESENTATION. Read a book about American history. You really need to. You're the guy who explains slavery by saying "everybody makes mistakes."
