Agreed. Trickle down is a hard boning to the middle class.
A flat tax is the only solution. And the wealthy and poor would scream for war.
If we truly want a stronger working class, a livable wage applied to both US and foreign products would do exactly that. Of course there would be ramifications to the inevitable tariffs, cross that bridge.
Most of the wealthy would prefer a flat tax. The poor probably would too. The problem is liberal politicians will spin class warfare to rally the poor against it.
I'm for a simplified flat tax. No deductions of all any kind.

The next step is cut the mafiaosos unions from standing between you and your employer pretending to work in your interests, but really just skimming off most of the benefits they allege to bring you in expensive dues.
