Does anyone actually believe this idiotic statement warrants any kind of fricking merit against the fairest tax system out there?

Goddamn

You are missing the progressive point.

The want to "Hurt" the "Rich" because it isn't fair they are "Rich".

Flat Tax doesn't "Hurt" the "Rich" more than the "Poor" so in their tiny brain it isn't "Fair".

Taxes can't hurt if your part of the 47% that doesn't pay taxes.

The fact that they think taxes are supposed to hurt anyone makes me hate this country

Taxes should have one purpose, to fund the government. And funding the government is the responsibility of every citizen who participates in society. There is nothing fair about it. It is just common sense that everyone should share in the burden.

If the federal government ran a 10 trillion dollar surplus, democrats would still want to raise taxes on the rich, because for them taxing is only about getting even with the people who succeeded while they themselves are losers.

This!

Nothing would be more fair and equal than taking the federal budget, dividing it by the number of citizens, and sending every one a bill.

When the government is funded by a slim slice of the population... that government will work in that population's best interests. And the remainder of society will have an interest in taking more from government, because they aren't responsible for paying for it. If that doesn't describe America 2013... I don't know what does.

Wake up. Progressive taxation is necessary to help lessen the inequality of society. Mr ceo can pay a higher petcentage than the mail room clerk

The same could be said for theft. Do you think it's OK to rob another so long as that victim is richer than you? Wouldn't that be "lessening the inequality of society"? Why is any different if you do it with the threat of shooting someone with a gun, or the government does it with the threat of jail?

The purpose of taxes is to fund the government. Blessing the robbery of another isn't a moral argument. Far from it. It's as immoral as robbery. Morals... are not means-tested.

The ideal form of taxation is one that minimizes that burden across all individuals. And one that spreads that burden equally.

You want equalty of income... go live in N.Korea.

Reminds me of the joke Rush likes to tell a couple of times a year. He says when the world is coming to an end, the headline in the newspaper will read: “World Ends Tomorrow: Women, Minorities Hardest Hit."

Its all about sticking it to the upper class. It doesnt matter that a flat tax is the most fair tax rate because it doesnt hurt the rich as much.
