      It’s really no where near that simple. What about foreign trade policy that favors the U.S? If we remove the policies that are beneficial toother countriesthen we’ll end up having to remove the ones that penalize them, too.

      Otherwise there won’t be foreign trade, which our economy is heavily dependent upon. And a flat tax is likely to be a huge burden to the poorest who already pay the least in overall taxes, while only make a small difference to the richest. Most folks are likely not to see a change at all. The difference in overall tax rates is not that huge.

      Even with a substantially reduced IRS. The difference in overall tax rates is not that huge.

      factories, mcdonalds, walmart, other companies- same as all the rest
      of us.

      if we stopped giving breaks to corporations over seas, the
      corporations would move back to the us and they’d have plenty of damn
      jobs here!

      if we changed our foreign trade policy we’d have more jobs in the us.

      besides that, if we had a flat tax and
      people weren’t losing $200-300 a
      week out of your check in taxes- they could use that towards Health
      Insurance/ Health Care.

      This country needs some Common Sense.
