danielabram answered: A national sales tax is the worst kind of tax: it is regressive. Therefore, poor people will be paying proportionately more than rich people. One proposal that I read a while back had the national sales tax similar to the state of Minnesota’s sales tax in that there would be no tax on food or clothing. That would mean that the poorest of people in this country would continue to not pay any taxes because they are poor and can only afford to buy food and clothing. In contrast the richest people in this country who spend most of their income on non-essentials  would pay proportionally much more in taxes. Thoughts? (Source: sammy-p)

16,845 pages in the US tax code ripe with ways to avoid paying taxes or pay too much because you didn’t know about some stupid deduction that would save you a bunch of money. The solution? Lets go to a national sales tax. What is the opposition to reducing it to 1 page that we all could read and understand other then some government jobs going away and letting people keep some of their hard earned money?
