I don't think you will find a lot of low income earners who will consider that a fair tax. If you take ten percent from a guy who makes $100,000 a
year he will still be able to afford shelter, food, etc. You take ten percent from a guy who makes $25,000 a year and that could mean the difference
between keeping the lights on or living in the dark.
I think the best answer is a sales tax. Anyone who buys anything, whether they are rich or poor, legal or illegal, whatever, will contribute to the
economy. But you cant go insane with the tax or you will strangle the low income earners just like a flat tax would. At least a sales tax captures
revenue from illegals that might otherwise go unnoticed.
