    I have a proposal for a tax plan and I thought I'd run it past you fellow LPSGers to see what you thought:

    OK, here it is:

    A = Your total Salary

    Your tax owed is:

    A - 50,000

    You keep the rest. If tax owed is negative, you will get a rebate equal to that amount.



    What do you think?

    I'd like to see you try it. Hey, Oprah, keep $50k for yourself and give us the rest.

    You really want to know what I think of it?

    Your tax proposal would ruin the American dream and create job loss. Socialism, unfair, redistribution of wealth, socialism, unemployment, business failure, failure of governmental programs, socialism, and socialism. Did I miss anything?









    Oh ya, socialism


    ...that will lead to communism

    Better yet, lower the rates and get rid of all the deductions. If you choose to have children, you pay for them. Travel for business? You pay for it. I could go on but you get the idea.
    Simplify the tax code across the board- that's only fair.

    Terrible. You didn't think about this very long, did you? I don't think you have a concept about exactly how many people make under 50k. And where did you get that number?


    The country would be bankrupt in a year.
