What is your opinion of the Senate keeping their Tax Reform Wishes Secret—for 50 Years?


The latest attempt at cover-up has begun. The Senate is voting to keep their tax reform input secret for 50 yrs. It seems that your senators believe that secrecy of this is quite normal. Besides, if they tell the public what they are going to suggest, then they would have to deal with the true spirit of the republic. Do you think it is time for the citizens to demand control of the tax system? Do you believe that a consumption tax of 1% on everyone including all business to business purchases is needed? Do you believe the Senate is acting just like the King that generated the revolution?

    The political establishment has become so corrupt that it will require replacing every politician over the next 4 years. The citizens can only win if this is accomplished correctly.

    President Obama has hidden more information about himself than most of the previous Presidents. He has caused this to be happening by setting such a bad example. We need a Constitutional amendment stating when in office all information is public.

    If you are not sure which Senate - then your opinion would be based on all Senates unless you researched the Senate that is attempting to keep their Tax Reform Wishes Secret—for 50 Years.

    I definitely agree with you completely. The citizen needs to be told the truth about their intentions. Every citizen should demand full transparency.

    Sorry-but the voters do not have control of the tax system. It is controlled by a Congress that is controlled by special interests. To alleviate this, the voters need to rally to create a single consumption tax-no exceptions, no deductions. FAIREST

    You are so correct. If they have something to hide, then they should leave office.

    They want to hide the unfair tax rules that they will vote for. Basically, they want to keep the public from knowing the bad rules they will employ.

    yes, with a 1% consumption tax on everything, we would generate more revenue. We would also operate like a business and could return the excess to those hard workers that made the goods.
