Change the tax codes so everyone pays a flat 18% Across the board. That's fair isn't it? Democrats talk about fairness all the time. Everyone paying the same sounds fair to me.

More like 27% if you don't want to cut Social Security/Medicare deeply.

But that would be a step in the right direction- it will end all of the special interest provisions built into the tax code.

And for those rolling your eyes- 27% is a lot more than the capital gains 15% cap (18% is more for that matter). If anything, tax revenues will go up because the multi-nationals like Apple & GM will have fewer places to hide income.

If you're gonna bleed all over about the poor just print them off some more food credit for their WIC cards. They can keep buying cases of energy drinks for their cocktails before mounting their new pickup trucks.

IMO it's too late anyway but if someone wants to take a shot at plugging the gaping hole in the hull from the inside then be my guest.

Here is the Democrat's final solution:

Obama has prepped for our "Great Leap Forward" by dooming our seniors to an earlier grave.

Part of the Obamacare law that went into effect this January 1 was to stop paying for my Aunt's blood pressure meds- no notice was sent to her or her doctor, apparently my 92 year old aunt is supposed to read 25K+ pages of regulations and prepare accordingly.

It's as old as paganism itself- when the crops don't come in start opening throats on the altar of hedonism until everyone left is satisfied again.

18% is fine. Maybe a few percent more. The problem in the US is people are not taught to be personally responsible anymore. It is NOT government's job to provide. Budgeting isn't rocket science yet to liberals it apparently is, why I don't know. Saving for retirement isn't rocket science either. To those on the left, their solution is just tax the rich more and redistribute it to every one else. It's a failed idelogy. Socialism, much like communism doesn't work.
Your problem is that you don't seem to comprehend that not everyone has the same starting point as you, and that some people start off so ridiculously handicapped by their circumstances that they're lucky if they can manage to even get enough education to have a clue that there is any other way than what they see around them every day.

You throw around words like Socialism and Communism like they actually mean something in the real world. They, like capitalism, have just been a means to extract wealth from everyone and funnel it to those in power. Everything else just depends on what people are willing to put up with. As information has become more available, their willingness to tolerate the rigging of the game has decreased as well. Places like N. Korea can only exist because they have managed to successfully limit the flow of information to their people so that nothing interferes with their brainwashing.
