I'm not convinced that lowering taxes on high incomes and raising taxes on low incomes is "fair".<quoted text>
Flat tax, no deductions, no exemptions, no credits, two lines on tax form, no need for IRS.
However, Republicans will never go for a plan that eliminates their write-offs and taxes capital gains at the same rate as other income.
It just isn't going to happen. Listen closely, they keep saying they would favor "flat tax" on "taxable income." Tax cheats can't be trusted.
