The best path toward tax refom

First Posted: 3/13/2013

Flat excise tax on all purchases..Poor buy little, but still pay the same percentage. Rich buy a lot, and pay the same percentage. So simple. Do away with the IRS, and lay them off with attrition. Won’t need them any more. Start with the 160,500 new ones assigned to just look at your 1040 to see if you pass their health insurance levels. It worked up until Woodrow Wilson decided to have a "temporary" tax to pay off WW1 debts..Been almost 100 years now of temporarality…All the tax codes (over 16,000 pages right now) do is allow for special interests to bribe our lawmakers through "lobbying". Do away with the tax code. Totally.
