quote: The only tax that is flat isn't flat. In order for the tax to not be regressive is to have one that takes into account the fact that money makes money.The more money one has, the more "tools" that person has at their disposal to get more. That's why we have companies and individuals of high income who pay very little in taxes, or even get money back (like GE).A flat tax is favored by so-called conservatives (plutocrats in disguise) because it pretends to be something it isn't: fair.
