Well said as always:
Here’s another good one:
If my tax rate went up, but everyone was guaranteed to pay the same exact rate, I would support it. No more out’s, no more credits, no more deductions. Just a simple equations, “Your Income” x “Tax Rate” = “What you owe” and the tax rate is the same no matter who you are or what you make.
I am more than willing because I know that tax rate won’t last for long as every last incumbent is voted out of office until the tax rates are finally lowered for everyone. You’re much less willing to support a tax when it’s your money the government is taking.
