|A Real, Actual Issue May Have Come From The GOP Debate|
The GOP candidates, some of them anyway, were at it again last night; they had their 4th televised debate. Many say it was a snoozer, but an actual issue was discussed this time, as opposed to the constant back biting, bickering, damage control and name calling we're accustomed to with this bunch.
Taxes - it was discussed, at least superficially.
But was there anything realistic, tangible in the 'discussion'? Would any of the "plans" work? Is a flat tax, as discussed last night, The answer, or even an answer?
Here's one view: "GOP 'simple' flat tax proposals simply don't add up",
We've heard it all before, and more; but we have yet to see a "flat tax" work on paper. The numbers don't add up as defined to date. The rich, particularly the 1%ers, get richer and the poor get more burdened.
There can be little question that our tax code needs work - maybe, even perhaps a complete overhaul. But are any of the candidates' "plans", the ones that have at least presented something, workable, realistic, doable?
In other words, we hear the talk and like the idea of restructuring our tax code, but have we heard any plan, from anywhere or anyone, that can work and improve upon the draconian tax code we currently have?
The experts don't think so. How about us non-experts?
