So, I suppose as a side effect of this "tax relief" for couples earning 250k a year, many people will opt to not get married for 400k is a lot larger. This is also the case in Germany where if a couple has a child out of wedlock, the state helps to cover the costs of raising the child in conjunction with tax 'breaks'.

Just a thought...

Let's do something meaningful, such as greatly simplifying the tax code, perhaps going to flat rate, which would save millions and millions of dollars in IRS costs for processing, harassment, etc. And an easy relief for all of us, allow all medical expenses to be deducted, not just if they are over the 7.5% mark.

Yep here they come after the last "change" you have in
your pocket so that all the "redistribution of wealth"
sponges can get all they can.

Change you can't believe in!
