I do not get why people do not figure out the net that americans earned in a year and then figure out what percent of that goes toward taxes and then set that rate for all. After that we could work on spending and individuals would actually feel direct benefit from smaller government.


Well what do we do about 50% of American who pay little or no federal taxes? And to be honest they can't afford much anyways. If we went with 10% flat how does that 40k family handle 4k reduction?


Well that was in the fine print.


You see i also believe that taxing labor should not happen and that the average money a person can make from their labor is 100$ a day 5 days a week.

I believe that anything made past 100$ a day is profit.

So every american would be able to earn up to 500$ a week income tax free. So taxes would start at around 25,000 a year for full time employment.

It is constitutional in the 50's.

Since we are giving corporations 1st amendment rights that means they would follow the same tax laws.

If a person made 10 million and the government took 99%, leaving 100,000 wouldn't put anyone in the poor house either.

But what if you made that $10 million running a beef farm, and AOC Green new deal put you out of work?

Or a coal plant owner, or gas station owner or any other business the GND specifically targets.

Poor house ALL THE WAY.

Dude!



The GND, as explained by the FAQs, calls for “build[ing] out high-speed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary.” AOC’s justification? Carbon dioxide emissions are causing dangerous global warming, and planes emit a lot of carbon dioxide.


AOC is an economic disaster in the making.

I'm Fine with that but I would say even 200 bucks a day then 5% to 80k and 8% to 100k then 10% after that.

Just where do people think the money 'raised' by legalized theft is going to be used?

It's earmarked for pork barrel spending.



It will:  Move America to 100% clean and renewable energy  Create millions of family supporting-wage, union jobs  Ensure a just transition for all communities and workers to ensure economic security for people and communities that have historically relied on fossil fuel industries  Ensure justice and equity for frontline communities by prioritizing investment, training, climate and community resiliency, economic and environmental benefits in these communities.  Build on FDR’s second bill of rights by guaranteeing:  A job with a family-sustaining wage, family and medical leave, vacations, and retirement security  High-quality education, including higher education and trade schools  Clean air and water and access to nature  Healthy food  High-quality health care  Safe, affordable, adequate housing  Economic environment free of monopolies  Economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work

How about a compromise between our thoughts here......

12% tax on all... 100$ day labor no tax... and allow for charitable deductions.....

That would keep most of our charities in the usa in place.

According to the op, 70 percent tax applies to earnings over 10 mill in this plan.
Doubt very much anyone getting their knickers in a twist in this thread need worry.

Taxation without representation is everyone's business.

Just because Cortez hates rich people.

She has no right to take someone else's property. Because she feels like it.

On the contrary.

Poor people don't usually write pay checks.

Far as I can tell, she's an elected rep.
That brings with it the obligation to explore policy options.

Better that than say nothing. Your taxes pay her wages anyway, might as well be glad she is trying.

Honestly, the way you go on, it's like you pay no tax right now.

Obligation to institute legalized discrimination.

The way I go on is someone that's read the GD constitution.

On the contrary.

Poor people don't usually write pay checks.


They usually pay taxes so that governments write the cheques, also buy things so that companies write cheques.

Generally, mega rich folks don't like paying for anything. Never see the queen buy a round, do you?
