Our current tax system is a joke. What used to be a straightforward concept of ideas is now a convoluted manual on tax evasion.
Those with the biggest paychecks and best accountants can get away with paying NOTHING in taxes. Meanwhile, the average earner is stuck footing the bills for our Government programs.
If taxing the highest earners more means that we can ensure our children won't starve, that our elderly can retire in dignity, and we can invest in our infrastructure, schools, and small businesses, then we must all be patriots and pay our fair share into the system.
