I think any plan that taxes income, or productivity is bad. Punishing work is a very bad way to get people to want to work. When you tax an activity you get less of it. I think ending all other taxes and replacing them with the "fair tax" is the right answer. Punish unbridled consumptionism which is the true bane of our world. Encourage work, encourage productivity, encourage thrift. You also get the side benefits of taxing the underground economy, and ending all loop holes. You eliminate the irs, how can that be bad?

I think the progressive tax system works but needs a major overhaul. I want the ultra rich to pay more and I want EVERYONE to have to pay something. I'm tired of hearing about people not having to pay any income tax, If were going to ask the wealthy in this country to pay more I think it's only fair to ask the bottom tier to have to pay more than 0. I also like the lowering of corporate taxes just not to 9%. I would support a "debt" tax that goes directly into paying off the national debt.
