    You're proposing that in a system where rich people find ways to not pay taxes, that upping the amount you're attempting to collect is the way to get them to pay their fair share.

    No. Under a flat tax everyone pays the same percentage.

    I would threaten them with prosecution andor breakup there business something that rarely happens now

    A flat tax hurts the poor because it kills progressive taxation which taxes the rich more which means lost revenue is made up by the poor/middle class

    or you could do that at the current tax rate.

    Flat tax does tax the rich more. 25% of a million dollars is a lot more than 25% of $25k. I don't know where you get the idea that there's some sort of levy on the poor, lol.

    Uffff...25% of 25k and 25% of 1,000,0000,000 means the rich still has 750,000,000 flipping dollars so it effects the poor more cause they dont have the extra 750,000,000 therefore it effects them disproportionately...if you dont see the difference then wow

    So are you worried about collecting taxes and funding social programs, or are you worried about taking money from rich people?

    I think I'm against a wealth tax...not increased taxes on income or capital gains.


    Change my mind.

    So you just have an irrational hate for people you perceive to be more succesful than you. This is where our conversation ends.

    You hate greed, yet you're advocating for taking other peoples belongings.

    In the world I get to create, no. The state has proven time and time again, they can't manage anything. The idea of them taking my money to squander on nonsense is the least logical thing the public was ever duped into.

    In the world in which we currently live, I'm fine with taxes.

    Not really, no. I believe it's a necessity as society currently sits.
