Either she is really stupid, or its true. 

 

 

The way things are going and the multiple wins for the US

This will lead to a 2nd term. 

 

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Thursday that Democrats would raise taxes if they win the 2018 midterm elections.

Middle class actually,

 

Raising might be too strong of word, how about elimination of tax credits instead, the end result is the same though.

So I guess the left is fine with expanding government and increased taxes

Republicans expand government

ballooning the debt.

There should be an equal flat rate tax for everyone with no deductions at all, EVER. Everybody, no matter how much you make, would pay the same (percentage). Business would also pay the same rate. No fairer or honest way than that.

Why shouldn't she admit it?

 

NJ's Governor, BEFORE THE ELECTION, promised to raise taxes and make us a sanctuary state.  They elected him anyway.

I paid taxes my entire working life. After retiring I still paid taxes up until 2 years ago when my son was able to claim me as a dependent and he pays taxes.

Flat tax of any kind would never work.

 

20% of the income earners pay almost 65% of every dollar collected.

 

another 30-40 % percent of income earners handle the remaining tax dollars collected.

 

I assume your flat tax scheme insist all citizens pay the same amount.  Including the ones that do not work, do not pay tax at the moment- many of whom have the highest burden on government provided services  This why it won't work.

 

Besides the upper 10% of income earners would rejoice for a flat tax

It would work if everyone paid the same percentage with NO DEDUCTIONS. It would force government to live within their means and force them to stop wasteful spending. There would be no sneaky way any more to extricate more money from "We The People". I wouldn't be surprised at all if just a 10% income tax on all business's and people would generate enough money to run the gooberment.
