It seems to make sense to me use a percentage like 10 or 15 % for everybody. No matter how high or low your income. I have never heard a good argument against this, but they avoid doing this.Answer Question

The only one I have hears is that its harder for the poor....i.e. 10% of $30,000 is $3000......10% of $250,000 is $25,000.....the argument is that its way easier for the richer person to come off that amt then it is for the poorer person to come off that amount. I dont agree with this. I do not think its fair that one portion (I think the number is like 8%) pays 85% of all income taxes paid. Whenever I ask someone who is for taxing the rich MORE how MUCH more should they carry (90%, 100%) I never get an answer. I dont have a problem with the flat tax. But it will never happen.. Just like SOME in Washington dont want to have to carry the HC they want the rest of us to have, they dont want to live by the same environmental standards they want the rest of us too, they also dont want lose the loopholes that they are able to get through with the current tax law.

The only argument I've heard is that it's supposedly "not fair" to the poor. So it's a moral question? I thought the same rate would be "fair". So I guess it is interpretation....

10% off someones salary that makes 24,000 a year will hurt them immensly, 10% off someone who makes 250,000 wont. so it is not fair.

people do not this is because they believe the higher end should pay more.The lower end, I think, get money from the government to offset what they will have to give.
So they will give the gov money , and the gov will turn around and give it back to them? doens't make sense
