Opening Argument

There are a lot of tax plans that have been in debate over the decades.

    Flat tax makes sense to me.  No need to punish high earners for being successful - that is a socialist notion

    I don't agree with flat tax, but like progressive more. It is a much more fair tax system which does not benefit the upperclass as much.
