I love a flat tax idea but what has been proposed is just garbage. Government at all levels needs to greatly reduce their spending
Reducing spending def isn't the answer. The Iraq and Afgan wars, def a waste of money. The emergency measures to stablize the economy and the stimulus...completely necessary. But could have been avoided if it wasn't for poor financial regulation. We need to raise tax rates, and redistribute wealth.
