Alpha1, it DOES work. It just takes longer than the time until the next elections when they're voted out of office again by the lies and exagerations in the socialist election brochures.
As opposed to the lies and exaggerations of the religious conservatives elecitons brochurses? Oh, please, grow up and give me a break. You sound like your sitting on the GOP Platform committe.
It works both ways-and actually, you'll see far more "propoganda sheets" from ultra-coservatives than you will ultra-liberals.
What's so unfair in having the same tax RATE for all people (or at least something close to it)?
Maybe because the wealthies people in the country-the ones who can afford to hire lawyers to find every loophole-get out of paying most taxes as it is? This way, their lawyers will just be saving them less in taxes. The rest of us don't have that luxury.
You don't need to milk the rich, but if you're going to lower tax rates such as this, why not close up ALL loopholes in the tax code that lawyers for the rich can find? I have no problem with such tax cuts if it weren't for the fact that the very wealthy in this country are not, for the most part, paying their fair share becuase of loopholes.
