3. I believe in abolishing the income tax

Then going to a federal sales tax to replace it. It would be a tax on everything and nobody escapes it.

Even prostitutes and drug dealers have to pay it. You get all of your paycheck then you get to decide what yo do with it.

This also means cutting out all refunds to everyone for anything. The IRS could be disbanded because nobody has to pay or receive refunds.

4. IRS or the equivalent would be needed to monitor and collect the taxes

Sales taxes are about the easiest to avoid. Saw it all the time in countries with VAT/national sales taxes.

Additionally it would eliminate things like sin taxes, which are over and above regular taxes.

6. Most people do not realize that even if they pay little or no income taxes

(fed and state and local), they still are taxed at about 25% of their income due to all the hidden taxes they pay.

1. They pay for the corporations taxes built into prices
2. gas taxes
3. Excise taxes
4. property taxes (even renters pay this in their rents
5. highway tolls
6.meals taxes
7. sales taxes

5. The benefits and burdens of government...

should, like the rain, fall equally upon the poor and the rich.

You can't explain to me why the tax on the first dollar should be any less or any more than the tax placed on the millionth dollar.

7. What leftists hope you do not realize

is that if we tax all at 10% a millionaire salary will pay far more than one who earns $75 K.

8. Lefty needs to lead by example.

Let's confiscate 70% of the assets of the following people:

George Soros
Tom Steyer
Mark Zuckerburg
Rob Reiner
Robert DeNiro
John Kerry
Nancy Pelosi
Chuck Schumer
Jared Polis
Dianne Feinstein
Steven Speilberg
Michael Moore
Leonardo DiCaprio
Madonna
Cher


Because they say government union employees know how to spend the money better than others.
