Actually this EXACTLY what we want. People who pay no taxes should be paying a minimum tax. Think of the impact of half the taxpayers having to pay a minimum tax of say $500!
I say that we should jump on this idiot’s ramblings and whole-heartedly institute minimum tax and no refunds to people with no tax liability.
In my opinion, it’s time for the poor to start paying their fair share.
“minimum tax and no refunds to people with no tax liability.”....Agreed. Just don’t raise taxes on those who already carry the load. Cut spending/reduce taxes.
I’d argue for doing away with the income tax and instituting a consumption tax with no exemptions aside form church and state.
Suddenly the billionaires and their little pet charities would find that they are paying taxes. And something tells me that they just might “find religion” on top of that...
