the flat tax sounds like a good idea.
the progressive tax system we have now , wouldn't even be so bad if it was done across the board ,without the loopholes and tax shelters.and just a moderate uptick intax rates for those that could bear it.or maybe for those whose money is made by usury.
but a sales tax does sound like a bad idea.
the local gov'ts already take a sales tax.
we don't need to hand the federal gov't a reason to add a sales tax too.(on top of what they already take)
what I'm saying is that the federal gov't ought to go after foreigners trying to do buisness here,for money.so they don't have to get as much from us.and any foreign entities that don't want to pay, can be replaced by domestic intrests that grow our economy.
I'm not saying a country without taxes could thrive and/or survive.
