And when the top 5 percent of income earners pay 53 percent of the money collected, something's wrong!
That's why we need the national sales tax. This way EVERYBODY pays their "fair share".
And 95% ( a wild guess) of the people are barely scraping by - and you want to increase their tax load ???
But I do think a national sales tax has its merits, but then the IRS must be completely closed down !
