The working poor, when they file, get the money they paid back and then some. Lowering taxes for everybody frees up money, money that will be spent, invested and or saved. The ONLY time progressives give a sh*t about the working poor is when they want their vote. Progressives demonize success, demonize the wealthy and themselves so they will not been seen as cruel, or without a heart when in reality they laugh (all the way to the bank)at the poor for believing their BS! When are people, like you, going to realize IT ISN'T THEIR(GOVERNMENTS) MONEY, IT IS OUR MONEY THAT WE MUST GIVE TO THEN UNDER THE THREAT OF A GUN!<quoted text>

The results you promise from a flat tax are pure theory, not yet proven in the real world, in a modern diverse economy.
I will be on board for tax simplification a wiping out of shelters and dodges in exchange for a lower marginal rates would most likely result in an increase in revenue provided the rates aren't watered down in a ideological inspired attempt at revenue neutrality. The flat tax would represent a cut for our wealthier citizens, the treatment of capital gains would determine the size of that reduction. To offset the loss of earned income tax credit the tax structure can not be flat unless you believe raising taxes on the working poor is fair.
As far as knowing the difference between Capital gains and income tax, please research the gentleman that you are lecturing. After that we can discuss taxation, job creation and budgetary issues.
As far as your education, you need to get your money back!
