Illustrates my point at #1. No way that taxes aren’t a cost of doing business.
I just wonder where the threshold between the 10% and 25% figure is. That’s what determine whether the middle class is taxed heavily or reasonably.
What would be fun is to have the threshold float annually to maintain no deficit, with the threshold being announced the first of November each year.
I’m suggesting that households be treated as businesses with profitable and unprofitable households. Profits are taxed. If there is no profit, then there are no taxes.
