While the tax COLLECTION certainly needs to be address, SPENDING is what is going to kill this nation. Until the current 24% spending of GDP gets downsized to 18%, we will continue down the death spiral.
And do not tell me that any particular tax strategy or framework will “starve the beast”. As long as Congress has the constitutional authority to borrow money, it is not possible to starve the beast.
You’re right, considering they’ll always just tax us with inflation to make up the difference, at least up to the edge of hyperinflation.
