Question 1: Under the law, should the tax code treat us all equally and should everyone pay some tax?
The tax code is complicated because there are different rates, deductions, exemptions, credits, and rebates for different taxpayers who are classified by marital status, gender, age, race, religion, and income (both by type and amount).
The complexity that results from this social engineering and class warfare translates into added tax calculation and collection costs which are passed on to all taxpayers in the form of higher rates, and to all consumers in the form of higher prices. Simplicity is the key to fairness and prosperity.
If it’s against the law to discriminat against Americans based on gender, race, age, religion, disability, and sexual orientation …. Then, why is it acceptable to discriminate against Americans based on their wealth and income?
