No - everyone should pay a standard flat tax on their income. I don't care if you make $5000 or $500000 - you pay X%. That applies to all income - payroll, ssi, unemployment, welfare, ss, etc.

The flat tax isn't a bad idea. BUT the super rich haven't had to pay their fair share for a long time and America has had to suffer for it. It's time for them (super rich) to step up and do the right thing. Let them pay a little more until America gets back on its feet. Then we can talk about the flat tax.

Why would you pay taxes to the government on money received by the government? Would the government send you more free money so you can afford to pay they taxes on it? Silly.

Churches should pay taxes. They employ people and run a profitable business.

Two things:

1. Military pay is taxed
2. If you tax entitlements - less incentive to make it a career.

NO - taxing welfare and government subsidies is self-defeating. If a person's income is so low that they need assistance paying for normal living expenses, where does the money come from to pay an additional fee such as X% tax? That's not an incentive to NOT receive welfare, that's another reason TO receive welfare.

A REAL incentive to earn more money that would disqualify you from welfare is the Unearned Child Tax Credit - the people who benefit most from this big fat tax return would be people who earn enough NOT to qualify for welfare assistance, however, they are supporting and raising children. This tax credit has been around for a long time.

Military income is taxed like the income most of us earn. Even though they are employed by the government, they still earn a living like non-government employees and so, should pay income taxes like they rest of us. But, if their military income is so small that they receive welfare assistance, then they do NOT pay taxes on that income or their welfare income - like the rest of us!

Any argument why churches shouldn't pay taxes?

what do you consider rich?

Is $90k a year rich for a single person? They probably work 60 hours a week and they probably save 20% or more. So are you punishing them for being a go getter and saving money.

Talk about taxing the rich. The rich file taxes 4 times a year and probably pay more than the average welfare person makes a year each time.

Not you! The REAL Rich!

The 1%. They have horded up all the money and the country needs it.

They need to sacrifice some profit as an investment in our country's economy and self-sufficiency. Create incentives to put our citizens to work - our workforce is being wasted and the aristocrats bathe in money.

This is total BS.

Where in the constitution does it say you can take someone else's money/property??

Even if they jack the tax rates way up for over $250k, it still won't fix the out of control spending problem. The proposed increases will run the country for maybe 10 days.

Y'all hold on because I think another recession is coming soon.

So why can't they jack the tax rates way up AND fix the out of control spending?

Since 1944, the United States has only raised taxes on the rich twice—in 1992 and 1994. What followed those tax increases was one of the greatest economic booms in American history.
