I'm all for overhauling the tax code. It's a bohemith that needs some serious trimming and simplification. However, I do not think this is a good idea:
NICEVILLE, Fla. (Reuters) - President Bush (news - web sites) said on Tuesday that abolishing the U.S. income tax system and replacing it with a national sales tax was an idea worth considering.Having everyone pay the same percentage relative to income is one thing, but to have everyone paying the same absolute percentage seems like a horrible idea. To have, say, John Kerry-Heinz paying 7% on a bottle of milk is not the same as having some guy making $10,000/year paying 7% on a bottle of milk. Bad idea.
