Flat Tax the Solution?

With our progressive tax system out of control it's time for reform. Americans pay a average of 22% and the rich even 33%. Is this fair? No it's not. The tax code is thousands of pages long and with the standards so high for the wealthy, it is a wonder why people cheat on their taxes. So much money is lost in hidden expenses a individual can claim so no one is taxed on their real income. A flat tax is a tax with little deductions. A flat tax is a smaller percentage of your income anywhere from 5%-7%. That is three times lower than the current average? This tax also simplifys the tax code and makes it a lot cheeper to collect taxes. This tax treats everyone the same and provides what we need. Give it a shot why not?

Lawmakers Willing to Gamble on Public Anger Over Health Care

The public is angry with Obamacare! They have the right to be after all who wants to be forced to buy health insurance? While the Democrates claim the benefits of the bill will be apparent, first signs of it do not support what they say. This bill could cost an additional 5.5 million jobds becase big buisnesses have to pay for healtcare now, infact this plan is going to hinder the economy and make the deficent even bigger. With government control of health, government now owns 51 percent of the economy. The voice of the people is not being heard some claim and this appears to be true with over half of the American population against this. The Democrates say we do not know what is in the bill and they are confindinet in their reelections in november. I guess we will see when we get there.
