Re: Today\'s Society...
Your forgetting a really big one for your campaign and PA has succssfully used this system for as long as I can remember without a problem.
And whether rich or poor..... you don't ever hear of anyone from PA crying foul from the intercity of Philadelphia/Pittsburgh or the blue collered farmer in the NE saying the system is unfair.
FLAT TAX!!! at the end of the year you take a $1.99 calculator and times your income by a certain percentage and your done. Or for those who have a minimal grade school education you could do it in your head.
Then there is no auditing, cheating, tax shelters, savings of BILLIONS of dollars of overhead for IRS salaries, buildings, maintaining the tax code manual, etc, etc) The savings alone of overhead for this system would free up billions of federal dollars to help elsewhere... or lower the taxes period.
I'll trade the Hummer for more rifles!! The old Chevy is still kicking just fine.
