What's terrible is the leftists leave high taxed areas like Illinois & California, then move to low taxed areas like Texas & Florida, then implement the same leftist policies which raised the taxes where they are fleeing from. Leftism is like a spreading disease & its infected both political parties.

Imo, the only justified form of taxes are voluntary lotteries. If we are to keep income taxes, I hope we replace all current federal social/welfare programs with a pro-rated federal tax funded UBI. For the same cost as all current federal social/welfare programs each U.S. citizen who is over 18 & who does not receive a pension can receive a UBI of @ $1700 per month, regardless if they have a job or not. That's how much money is currently being wasted on federal social/welfare programs. A UBI which replaces all current federal social/welfare programs can be implemented without raising taxes or touching military spending. People can use their UBI money in the free market on basic needs like food, housing, health insurance & higher education. The minimum wage & student loans can also he eliminated with a UBI which replaces all current federal social/welfare programs. Criteria can be established to receive consecutive years UBI, like a requirement to have health insurance. A UBI which replaces all current federal social/welfare programs can limit the size of the federal government while supporting the free market simultaneously.

With the Federal Reserve Bank's ongoing devaluation of the dollar, as well as, stagnant wages, which cause the widening wealth gap between the rich & poor, a pro-rated federal tax funded UBI is the most justified option for the majority of U.S. citizens. Under a UBI which replaces all current federal social/welfare programs tax brackets can remain the same & UBI amounts will increase if federal tax revenue increases.
