    I agree, but in order to provide security for the nation, some funding is required. While enemies continue to mount terror attacks on us we must properly fund a military that is superior to them. All other departments-agencies are just nice to have.

    Your simple and easy plan simply continues to drain the incomes of the hard working middle-class. Deductions provide an avenue for deceit much like the current system. A fair 1% consumption tax on everyone (business to) eliminates all income tax.

    Well we already pay the 8% SS and taxes on everything we buy so I think 12% is a little high and just think if all the millionaires and billionaires are paying a fair share there won't be any money worries. It would be fair.

    This 'fair tax' hurts the poor far more than the wealthy. The lower your income, the greater the portion that has to be spent on the necessities. The wealthy could simply save more cutting the total tax they pay.

    Elitist conscription is generated in a scaling tax because it provides a false sense of superiority for those at the top of the scale. We see this routinely in actors, actresses, and sports figures who decry they are not to be treated as commoners.
