I think the flat tax would be great for 2 reasons.
1. It would screw over the 60% that don't pay taxes.
2. It would screw over the government that made the 60% exempt.
3. It would screw over the IRS one less government leach-eliminate them all together.
4. No need to raise taxes ever because we now have a 60% increase in tax payers.
Did I say 2?
