I certainly do. I support a 10% flat tax across the board. I am fine with a poverty level that doesn't pay. But I love flat tax, no deductions, nothing.
The ONLY problem I see with that is that charities would take a hit, since most donate large sums in order to reduce their tax debt.
However, it will never happen, our government is too bureaucratic .
I would love any new tax code that was as simple as that!

No, I don't. It creates an unequal burden on those with lower incomes. The $2,000 in taxesto a person making $20,000 a year "costs" more than the $20,000 in taxes "costs" a person making $200,000. The person with a lower income may have trouble EATING, where as the person with the higher income may have to buy a Coach purse instead of a Versace.
While I don't agree with overtaxing the wealthy, a flat tax over taxes the poor.
