Well gee Einstein, if there is a corrupt tax code system that has created so damn many lopp holes and shelters for one's monies, than of course they will "work the system" to their best advantage. DUH !!!You have such petty dreams.
Buying at tiffany's doesn't help the economy, twit. That's the rich paying the rich.
One of the first things the rich do is find ways of not paying taxes. That is not paying even their fair share, much less is proportion to their elevated status in terms of civil perks.
If you force legislated extortion on them, guess what happens to their "wealth" then dummy? They invent a better mouse trap and figure out ways to "shelter" it even more. HELLO !!!!
If you INCREASE their tax burden, guess what they do then Einstein? They PASS IT ON TO THOSE BELOW. Guess who pays them dumbass? The middle class and the poor.
If you are going to have an income tax at all, make damn sure it is actually fair - and the ONLY fair tax, is structured like sales tax - EQUAL PERCENTAGE RATES FOR ALL.
