Rick Perry is coming to town with a tired old idea - the flat tax - only it's voluntary. That's right, in an effort to simplify 3 million lines of tax code, Perry has proposed adding another layer of tax rate that you can elect to pay if your taxes computed under the old system add up to more than 20%. How is this simplification? This is an unvarnished tax reduction for the highest bracket taxpayers.
It's just another way to lessen taxes for those who can most afford to pay, and stick it, yet again, to the middle class.
Just say 'no' to more of the same old trickle down doodoo with a bumper sticker from Aimless Arts.
