It's not the "tax code" per se that's the source of the problem ~ rather, it's the 16th amendment that says "The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration. "

REPLACE IT WITH A 10% FLAT TAX

*EVERYONE* PAYS

no tax on government employees, who are already being paid FROM taxes

no tax on any government income (Social Security, unemployment, etc)

AND THE GOVERNMENT *MUST* ONLY SPEND WHAT IT TAKES IN EXCEPT FOR EMERGENCY DEFENSE EXPENDITURES!

And I am going to give a beating to the nest “fair” tax person who tries to explain why the ‘tax-inclusive’ rate is good)

REPLACE IT WITH A 10% FLAT TAX

*EVERYONE* PAYS

no tax on government employees, who are already being paid FROM taxes - and their salaries are FROZEN for the next 10 years (then they cannot exceed private sector annual salary)

NO MORE ‘20-and-out’ - paying people full retirement from government jobs after 20 years is insane. they can ‘retire’ at 65 like the rest of us.

And your retirement pay CAN NOT exceed your base pay.

SOCIAL SECURITY is optional, if you have a retirement account.

no tax on any government income (Social Security, unemployment, etc)

AND THE GOVERNMENT *MUST* ONLY SPEND WHAT IT TAKES IN EXCEPT FOR EMERGENCY DEFENSE EXPENDITURES!

And I am going to give a beating to the next “fair” tax person who tries to explain why the ‘tax-inclusive’ rate makes sense)

[anything else I can solve while I am here?]

I’m sure that many of you have heard this one, but it was introduced to me today! I have a new favorite song:

It’s like asking a drug addict to give his stash to somebody else.

The tax code is the structural rot of our republic. Lobbyists of all stripes pay big-time to ensure it’s jiggered in their benefit.

The politicians aren’t about to kill their golden goose.

People should be taxed on their success.

“Even if folks have an accountant, and by now an estimated 80 percent of us use a tax preparer, or at least some software, to figure out how much we owe, it’s still a wearing process.”

The accountants use software to tackle the damn tax code too.

When your tax return is close to 9 lbs and you have to ship it in a box it is time for REFORM!

If you've read the books on FairTax, the disadvantages of the current income tax system (hundreds of billions per year in compliance costs, discouraging savings and capital investment in the USA, and the political corruption from 30,000 tax lobbyists fighting for every scrap of a tax break) is why we need to put an end to the current tax code as soon as possible.

I'd go with the Steve Forbes no-loophole 17% flat-rate plan NOW and start a 2-3 year transition that at the end of the transition, we repeal the 16th Amendment and replace the income tax with FairTax.

The tax code is a weapon against the citizens.
