It is still discriminatory to the single person, as they don't have an option.
And you think all discrimination is the same, from other questions that you have answered.
Is this discrimination?
No, I've never indicated all discrimination is the same. In fact I've said "All laws discriminate against someone or a group." We as a society determine if the law makes sense. The $6300 deduction (per person) is the same married or single!
My apologies dashingscorpio
It was nicomp and I thought I remember it was you..
Really sorry. my fault in relying on my memory instead of checking it out.
As to your response, society has little affect on changing senseless laws.
No problem! :)
As for society I do believe changes occur in laws with each generation. There was a time where slavery was legal and then people rose up against it. As society changes so do many of the laws we choose to govern us change.
That is true, but society has made major mistakes from new laws, and even in amendments. Basically, because the government cannot successfully resolve social issues. Abortion is still an issue since 1974. Marriage is still an issue
I see your point.
However those things are only "issues" because some people aren't content with just controlling their own lives!
If someone is pro-life they don't have to have an abortion, Against same sex marriage don't marry the same sex.
That is not the way social issues play out. And that is why they are different than balancing a budget, and other objective issues. point is that the SC doesn't resolve issues they decide cases, and 5-4 decisions are questionable, 4 justices disagree
I cannot disagree with you more.
I gather you are single
Married for 24 yrs. Income Tax doesn't need to be so complicated and unfair.
Marriage has been succeeded by divorce since 1970 no fault divorce.
Taxes can be derived from other than Income Taxes, National Sales Tax is fair
