Cut to the Heart of the Matter

On this tax day, read the whole thing, but this is the money quote:
"You could completely eliminate income taxes for the bottom half of the population, and the Treasury would hardly notice."
When 50% of the people are not "invested" - that is, have "skin in the game" - what kind of political system is possible? A second money quote:
The majority who pay nothing resent those with higher incomes; the minority who pay heavily resent those who don't pay.
Exactly. The "Tipping Point" is staring directly in front of us.

Which is why we need to enact the FairTax pronto. Everyone pays, although the poor will pay a slightly lower percentage of their earnings than the rich due to the prebate.
