Fix it then, with a flat tax. No deductions. No one escapes it. No sliding scale. You could possibly even get your vaunted healthcare for everyone.
But you wont do that, will you?
Guess who won't do it? The top 1% who pocket the politicians. They love the complex tax plan so they can have writeoffs and deductions and any number of tricks to save money.
What you really need is a flat tax which INCLUDES everything. Most importantly stock/capital gains.
Why should Mitt Romney pay at a rate on his income - which is nearly entirely investments - lower than I do?
I don't blame Trump for doing this - if in fact it was done by the rules (which it surely wasn't).
But he's tried to hide it and now he's been exposed. No one to blame but himself.
