I enjoy all the things my taxes pay for, and I like that our country has a safety net for those who need it -- including myself if I ever needed it-- so yes..of course I would still pay.

I would hand over a flat 15%.  10 to federal, 5 to state.

I wouldn't pay federal over a flat amount to cover national security. I would rather give my money to my state and local governments where there's more accountability.

I think that I would probably give around 5% to state and 5% to federal. 

We so need tax reform, preferably the fair tax plan (since everyone seems to like the word "fair" these days!)

 I'd be willing to pay, 5% to the state and 5% to the feds.

If there was a flat tax, there'd be no need for deductions, and loop holes.

I would pay them. And really, I don't care what the percent is, as long as its reasonable and everyone else paid the exact same percentage whether they made 1,000,000 or 1,000.

If the federal government continued to squander the nations wealth on murderous wars across the globe, I would NOT pay a dime!

So here's the deal.  If we had to pay a certain amount, and we got to choose what areas we wanted the money to go to in what increments, I would definitely pay.
