A plain flat tax or sales tax, period.
I would be on board with this big time. I would not even mind a 3 percent National Sales Tax. A VAT Tax of 3 percent that goes to the debt. A state tax of 3 percent on every purchase (nothing exempt) and a 1 percent local tax on all items for every person buying an item in various counties. That is a total of 10 percent tax on EVERY Item you buy. Sure it will go up and up and up, but I highly doubt it will get up to 40 percent or more that we pay today on all taxes (at least not for many generations).
10%? Wishful thinking.
In Chile, their’s runs 17+% and you never hear much crying about it.
