How is taxation based on income equitable when so many people find loopholes to avoid taxes?
Is not taxation based on consumption far more equitable? Rich people consume far more than anybody because the have the assets to do so. We could abolish ninety percent of the IRS staff and the entire tax code tomorrow if Congress passed a law that two cents on every dollar spent goes to the government. Trust me, the Trump’s of the world will spend more on taxes in one year than most people spend in three lifetimes.
