Okay, how about this. A new 5% bracket for the 47% that currently don’t pay federal income tax.
Amen....... those who don’t pay are the largest potential source.
The tax is coming, a different tax, a trickle down tax called Cap and Trade. The energy producers pay the tax, raise their prices and it l trickles down to all consumers. It is still progressive in the sense that those who consume most pay most.
The Eurocrats know they cannot raise the income tax rates that are used to purchase votes. They must find another way, a subterfuge, a hidden tax.
